Police will be on Shuswap Lake over this August long weekend making sure boaters are safe and sober.
Sicamous Sgt. Murray McNeil says police will be checking for safety compliance and sobriety of operators, expecting the lake will be busy with boat traffic.
On Sunday, July 30, RCMP conducted patrols on Shuswap and Mara lakes, checking 12 vessels for compliance. McNeil said three written warnings were issued to boaters who failed to produce their boat operators licence, which carried a fine of $287.
