Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

The Sureté du Que­bec has in­creased its polic­ing of recreo­tourist sites and ac­tiv­i­ties in the last few years. Since May of this year, wa­ter pa­trollers have car­ried out op­er­a­tions on 22 wa­ter cour­ses. Dur­ing those op­er­a­tions, 151 boats were in­ter­cepted and 18 fines were handed out for not hav­ing enough life­jack­ets on board. Those fines are $500 plus fees. Thir­teen boats were pulled out of the wa­ter for mul­ti­ple in­frac­tions that posed safety risks to their pas­sen­gers. The po­lice also gave out 173 warn­ings to peo­ple for sev­eral dif­fer­ent in­frac­tions.
