Peter Healy reports that,on Friday Sept. 29, 22 Lake Temagami residents, many of whom were TLA members, attended bail hearings at the Haileybury courthouse for two suspects in the recent round of break ins near the landing earlier this month. Both requests for bail were denied and the suspects will be brought to trial in the near future. A publication ban is in place preventing us from publishing details of the hearings.
An article was recently published in The Temiskaming Speaker regarding the need for stiffer penalties for criminal activity on Lake Temagami. The article has been re-published below with the permission of the Temiskaming Speaker and the author Sue Nielsen.

“Peter Healy writes “What happened to summer?” Here on Lake Temagami we are now into the Fall Season. Temperatures this weekend are forecast to be a high of 30 C (80 F) a forecast I never made once this summer on our radio service. Further to that I just went for a swim – water temperature is back up to 68 F and rising.
The following three items (PDFs) have been sent to the TLA by the conservation office of the Ministry of Natural Resources. They list fines for illegal fishing and camping activities during the summer of 2017.
The PDF was provided by the Ontario Provincial Police in relation to recent break-ins on Lake Temagami.
