Trent Severn Waterway Working Group launches website
The Trent Severn Waterway Working Group is pleased to announce the launch of its new website, trentsevern.ca.
The website offers members of the general public the opportunity to find information about, and show their support for, the Trent Severn Waterway Working Group.
The Group is committed to working with federal, provincial and local governments to find a solution to the short- and long-term issues affecting the Trent Severn Waterway.
“The Trent Severn Waterway is an important natural resource which is being underutilized,” stated Marc Ackert, CEO and Captain of Ontario Waterway Cruises.
“Our website will be the hub of information about the Trent Severn Waterway, and will give the community the voice it needs in helping to ensure the long-term financial and environmental sustainability of the Waterway.”
The Trent Severn Waterway Working Group website outlines the Group’s goals and mission statement, and provides a sign-up page for those interested in joining the initiative.
Key goals of the Group include ensuring that current cutbacks to canal operations do not permanently damage the long term sustainability of the waterway, and addressing the many important issues important to the Canal community, including but not limited to navigation, cultural and historic interpretation, infrastructure, environmental protection, and water management issues.
“We invite all members of the community with an interest in the Trent Severn Waterway to visit our website and join the Trent Severn Waterway Working Group,” added Ackert.
Current members of the Group include Ontario Waterway Cruises, Lift Lock Cruises, Happy Days House Boats, Voices for the Trent Severn Waterway, Mayor John Williams (Quinte West) and Peterborough County Council.
