rally by sea

all boats welcome!

Fishermen from throughout Nova Scotia, PEI and New Brunswick  will be on Pictou Harbour in full force  sending a message to our government that an effluent pipe in the Northumberland Strait is not an option.  Pleasure boaters, motorized and non-motorized, are encouraged to join  fishermen in supporting a healthy, sustainable Northumberland Strait.
