Cold work if you can get it

            Trent-Severn Waterway workers were busy putting ten 20-foot floating docks into the water just below the Bobcaygeon locks last week—just as the waterway was beginning to ice up.

            The floating docks, weighing close to two tonnes each, will be chained to the side of the canal over the winter, and permanently

installed next spring, after ice-out, along the peninsula across the canal from the Water’s Edge restaurant.

            The project, partly the result of negotiations between the Trent-Severn and local business ginger group, Impact 32, will provide an additional 200 feet of docking space along the canal—just in time for the year of free lockage on the system to mark Canada’s 150th birthday celebrations.
