Important warning: safety behaviours to adopt on the ice of the St. Lawrence River, the Bay of Gaspé and the Saguenay River

| Canadian Coast Guard | news releases

The Canadian Coast Guard, Central Region, and the Quebec Public Safety ministry remind the public that it can be very dangerous to venture out onto the ice of the St. Lawrence River, the Bay of Gaspé or the Saguenay River. We are experiencing a particularly mild start to winter with a prolongation of above seasonal temperatures, which has the effect of delaying the consolidation of the fast ice. The ice is too thin to allow for safe activities, so we recommend not going on the ice.
