Was fishing east side pelee yesterday evening when an Ontario police boat pulled up.They asked about fish caught and wanted to see our liscences.We showed them our nonresidence tags without incidence. The officer noticed my soda with a styrafoam huggy around it.He asked if that was a beer and i showed him it was a soda.He asked me to hand it to him and he smelled to make sure had no alcohol in it.He asked if we had any alcohol on board and i told him we did not and i asked if it was illegal to carry any alcohol on board.He said it was illegal to have any alcohol on board unless we had a kitchen and head on the boat.Just wanted to post so if anyone was crossing the line and didn't want any fine.Not even sure what the consequences would have been if that was a beer.

Nothing new there ! Those RCMP Came from Lemigton more than likely.

But yes that is their laws. They do come out from time to time to make all aware what their Laws are !
