Work on Burleigh Fall’s Dam Postponed
In a recent letter to me from Darryl Whitehead, External Relations Manager, Parks Canada, he indicated that due to a larger than expected
cost estimate for replacement of the structure, the engineers have been asked to return to the options analysis phase. This is in order to
explore what options might be available to safely extend the life of the existing structure. The options analysis will extend through
much of this year and so we are now looking to 2019 and maybe 2020 as the best estimate for construction. When construction does
start, it may be extending the life of the existing structure or replacement.

Net Neutrality Repealed In The United States and What It Means to a Canadian Internet User
Net neutrality was repealed in the United States on 2017/12/15. Our web hosting site, Web Hosting Canada, has a plain, easy to understand, explanation of net neutrality and I wanted to share it with you.
A possible issue may be the speed some sites load if you are in the US and asking for a Canadian site (such as this one). If you are asking for a Canadian site hosted in the United States, it may load more slowly than you have experienced in the past. For a better understanding please follow the link below.

Lovesick Lake Camp Ground Expansion Plans
- The Lovesick Lake Trailer Park purchased the former Strickers Resort property in December Of 2016. This property currently has 44 permanent RV sites as well as eleven cottages. Ten of these cottages have been torn down and replaced with RV site cottages

Gerry Herron, Selwyn councillor , indicated to two Lovesick Lake Association committee members that the proponents intend to develop this large expansion over 15 years, once they comply with the Planning Departments demands.
