There have been growing community concerns about waterway safety along the Pinawa Channel and the Lee River. To address these issues, the Rural Municipality of Lac du Bonnet has established the, Vessel Operation Restriction Regulations Committee (VORR), to gather information, receive public input, and report recommendations to the Rural Municipality of Lac du Bonnet. 

The recommendations made by the VORR Committee will be reviewed by the Rural Municipality Council, with the goal of submitting an application to Transport Canada to have safety regulations put in place.

Between June 1 and August 11, 2020, the Committee will:

1 Conduct a Community Survey;
2. Host 3 Public Forums:
a. Wednesday, June 24th, at the Rural Municipality Office 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

c. Saturday, July 25th at Fernwood Picnic Shelter 9:00 to 11:00 a.m.
3. Research efforts made in other similar communities;
