It’s been iffy weatherwise through the early spring, but we get an uptick in time for the holiday weekend. Sunshine in store from here to Holiday Monday, high of 21 today, make it 23 tomorrow and Sunday and 28 on Monday. More than a few people will be dipping more than a big toe in the water this weekend, taking the boat out for spin. OPP concerned about this with eight deaths already this year on water they patrol – almost three times as many as last year at this time. None of the victims was wearing a life jacket. Expect a huge police presence on the water this weekend
officers checking to make sure boaters have all the safety equipment they need.
It will be business as usual for the most part Saturday and Sunday. Some liquor and beer stores will be open longer hours, but Monday just about everything will be closed.
