13 July 2009, 7:18 pm twice police and bylaw were called due to people jumping off the break wall, harbour entrance. There is a by law prohibiting swimming in the harbour. There have been complaints about youth jumping off the cement wall to dive under boats that are passing through. Common sense should tell you that this is not a wise idea. Boats cannot stop the same as cars, but you would not jump out in front of a car the same way. Be smart and have a safe summer. Think about what you do.
