Ice fishers continue to risk injury or worse by walking out onto the frozen water on the lake, despite warnings from Barrie Police that the ice is unsafe to carry weight.
Barrie Police have issued warnings recently that looks can be deceiving, Barrie Police constable Nicole Rogers tells the Barrie Examiner:
“The ice is at no point secure, so you have to be educated on where you’re walking and where you’re going and have all the safety equipment being worn,” Barrie police Const. Nicole Rodgers said, of conditions on Kempenfelt Bay. “We saw an ice hut out on the weekend. They’re not being very safe because it is definitely something we would not recommend,” she said. “Our message with ice safety is: stay safe, stay alert, stay onshore. – Const. Nicole Rogers to the Barrie Examiner
