E-M:/ Ontario Today on Great Lakes Live Ammo



Hello Michigan,


Click the above link for today’s piece on CBC Radio about the Coast Guard’s proposal to do live fire gun exercises to be conducted by Coast Guard cutters and small boats in the Great Lakes.  The safety zones “are necessary to protect the public from the hazards associated with the firing of weapons.” 


On the radio program, Chief Petty Officer Robert Lanier was interviewed, he reported that documents (factsheets and maps, etc) are accessible from www.D9publicaffairs.com .  The August 1, 2006 Federal Register proposed to set up safety zones for US Coast Guard Water Training Areas in the Great Lakes


Give a listen, and make sure to ask the Coast Guard for public hearings to accompany the extended comment period.
