New safety rules for recreational drone

image

The new regulations were enforceable starting on March 16th 2017 and are immediate measures that will be in place for one year until permanent regulations are put in place. I think we can expect the permanent measures to be just as specific and even more restrictive on recreational drone users. The regulations are absolutely necessary for safety as recreational drones and aircraft do not mix well together around airports, aerodromes, water aerodromes, or in controlled airspace. The new regulations spell things out in plain English so that non-aviators who partake in recreational drone use can understand the limitations without needing any background or formal aviation training.

Canadians have reported unsafe drone operations to Transport Canada through various channels. We have developed this form to make it easier for Canadians to report such incidents, while helping Transport Canada gather more information via a single-entry-point.

Forest festival is back with a bang

By Mark Arike - Staff Writer (The Highlander)

After being cancelled last summer, the Forest Festival is back for its 10th year with some high-caliber Canadian talent.

“We’re really, really thrilled with our lineup,” said festival manager Lesley English.

Every summer, prior to 2016, the festival’s taken place at the Bone Lake Amphitheatre and the Logging Museum, both owned by the Haliburton Forest and Wild Life Reserve. But in February last year, a judge ordered the Forest to demolish several buildings, including the museum, because building permits were not obtained. The Forest pulled the plug on the festival in March, shortly after a heated public meeting between owner Peter Schleifenbaum and Dysart council.

Water Quality

Not enough natural shoreline in county: CHA

By Chad Ingram Published Feb. 28, 2017

There is not sufficient natural shoreline within Haliburton County, not by a long shot, according to the Coalition of Haliburton Property Owners Associations (CHA).

“This is a very preliminary report,” CHA chairman Paul MacInnes told Haliburton County councillors as he presented findings from the coalition’s shoreline improvement project during a Feb. 22 meeting. 
Also called the Love Your Lake program, during the past three summers, the CHA has hired evaluators – typically university students in the environmental sciences – to travel lakes by boat, assessing properties based on numerous factors including development setbacks, docks, slope, invasive species, retaining walls, etc. 
The results of those evaluations are then sent confidentially to property owners, with suggestions on how to better naturalize their shorelines.

Jellyfish in Haliburton waters

Thomas Giguere has embraced Haliburton County’s lakes since he was a toddler.

His love of the water and fascination with the life in it led him to enrolling in the marine and freshwater biology program at the University of Guelph.  

So when the 21-year-old heard there were jellyfish in the Highlands, it piqued his interest.

Notes (RLCA): from U.S. Geological Survey - Freshwater jellyfish is not considered dangerous to humans.  Although its stings can paralyze macroinvertebrates and small fish, its small nematocysts are not likely to penetrate human skin (Peard, 2002).  Follow link to article
