            Trent lakes council has approved the installation of four signs around the municipality asking people to contact the Ontario Provincial Police when they see boaters who are under the influence of alcohol consumption.

            Some people don’t seem to understand that drinking and boating can be just as

dangerous as drinking and driving, Peterborough detachment OPP officer Marc Gravelle told council in seeking permission to put up the signs. They will paid for by Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Canada.

            “We need the public’s help,” he said.

            Final locations for the signs will be determined in consultation between the municipality and the OPP, but the Crystal Lake, Nogies Creek and View Lake boat launches are being considered.
