I just wanted to touch base to clarify something that was brought to my attention from the SCOI web page. The $500 fine that our Bylaw Officers are giving out to leaseholders returning to cottages was set in place due to the state of emergency issued by SFN Chief and Council. The ticket is not a trespass offence, it is a community safety violation offence pertaining to this specific event.
Just wanted to clarify that this is not a trespass ticket being issued to leaseholders at their property.
