As you are aware, the Draft Strategic Policy for Bait Management in Ontario is currently posted on the Environmental Registry (www.ebr.gov.on.ca) (#012-9791). The comment period is open from February 27-June 27, 2017.
As part of the consultation period we have scheduled a number of information sessions across the province to explain and clarify what is being proposed and answer any questions that stakeholders may have on the draft policy. We will be having three types of sessions: 1) combined industry/stakeholder sessions; 2) Public open houses in the evenings; and 3) Indigenous sessions

The session dates and locations are as follows:

Stakeholder information sessions will be held in the following locations:

Location Date Time Address
Sudbury May 24 9am-12pm Lexington Hotel, 50 Brady St., Sudbury
Timmins May 25 2-5pm Ramada Inn, 1800 Riverside Dr., Timmins
Kingston May 29 2-5pm Ramada Kingston Hotel, 33 Benson St., Kingston
London June 8 2-5pm Best Western Plus Lamplighter Inn, 591 Wellington Rd, South, London
Thunder Bay June 13 9am-12pm Valhalla Inn Hotel, 1 Valhalla Inn Road, Thunder Bay
Kenora June 15 9am-12pm Clarion Lakeside Inn, 470 1st Avenue South, Kenora


In addition to the stakeholder information sessions, MNRF will also be providing public open houses, at the locations and times outlined below. These open house sessions will be relatively informal with MNRF staff being available for one-on-one discussions to answer any questions that individuals may have.

Public open houses will be held in the following locations:

Location Date Time Location
Sudbury May 23 6:30-9:00pm Lexington Hotel, 50 Brady St., Sudbury
Timmins May 25 6:30-9:00pm Ramada Inn, 1800 Riverside Dr., Timmins
Kingston May 29 6:30-9:00pm Ramada Kingston Hotel, 33 Benson St., Kingston
London June 8 6:30-9:00pm Best Western Plus Lamplighter Inn, 591 Wellington Rd, South, London
Thunder Bay June 12 6:30-9:00pm Valhalla Inn Hotel, 1 Valhalla Inn Road, Thunder Bay
Kenora June 15 6:30-9:00pm Clarion Lakeside Inn, 470 1st Avenue South, Kenora

Once again we encourage all stakeholders to review this posting and either submit comments through the Environmental Registry (www.ebr.gov.on.ca; #012-9791).
If you have any questions regarding the proposed policy or the provincial bait policy review process, please contact Scott Gibson (Senior Fisheries Biologist) at bait@ontario.ca or at 705-755-5395.

Just curious if anyone attended the Public open houses. I attended the one in Thunder Bay and there was not a lot of people who turned out. I hope that isn't a reflection on the interest that this subject should get.
