Canoeist found safe


Around 10 a.m. yesterday, Thunder Bay OPP officers were advised of a canoe that was located partially submerged in Wild Goose Bay in the Municipality of Shuniah.

Officers responded and observed the canoe to contain camping gear and other articles, but there was no paddle or lifejacket with it.

Shortly after, a lifejacket and paddle were located in the bay.

Several OPP units, as well as the Canadian Coast Guard, the Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre, and a Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry helicopter, searched the area of Wild Goose Bay.

Around 1:10 p.m., the male associated with the canoe was located safe and sound in Shuniah.
