(Patty)Ritchie(Republican) Joins Forces With Canadian Senator, Member of Parliament To Boost Tourism and Strengthen Economies Of Two Nations
State Senator Patty Ritchie has announced the passage of a new Canadian law that lifts a cloud of uncertainty over boaters rights on the St. Lawrence River that was hurting 1000 Islands tourism and threatening to sour longstanding bonds of friendship between two of the world’s greatest nations.
Under this new law, American boaters who do not anchor their boat or step foot on Canadian soil do not have to report to Canadian Customs. In addition, the measure will also exempt Canadian boaters from being required to report to their customs officials when they return to Canadian waters, as long as they met the same requirements while they traveled in U.S. waters.
