Any meeting and event planners had counted on taking a group or business meeting on a cruise in or around Toronto Harbour, during the G20 summit, should think again.
The Integrated Security Unit has released Toronto marine restrictions for next week’s G8 and G20 summits, according to The Globe and Mail.
In Toronto, the restrictions will affect boaters from June 24 through June 27. Boats will be restricted from entering eight “enhanced security zones” in the harbour, which have been placed around ferry terminals and an area of the portlands near the Eastern Gap.
Boaters must keep at least 300 m. away from the ferry terminal at Mainland Ferry Docks, 30 m. away from City of Toronto ferry terminals, and 50 m. from the ferry servicing the Toronto Island airport. Boats must also keep 30 m. away from ferries as they make their way across the harbour.
