With the stay-at-home-order the stakeholders within the Municipality of Port Hope made the decision to close the lands that run along the Ganaraska River.
This would prevent people from fishing. On Friday night April 23, 2021 Port Hope Police had dedicated members patrolling the river to ensure compliance.
Port Hope Police had no calls for service regarding fishing. The officers walked the river from Lake Ontario, north to the Fish Ladder several times.
This would mean people are doing their part to help flatten the curve by staying home.
