Unsafe Ice: Ice Huts On Lake Simcoe

Ice hut operators say it's too soon for huts to be there and too dangerous

Ice huts on Cook’s Bay, the southern point of Lake Simcoe.

Despite the generally mild weather, some anglers are way too eager to cast a line, putting themselves at risk.

A concerned citizen sent pictures to South Simcoe Police today of huts on the ice and vehicles parked near shore.

According to police, local ice hut operators say it’s too soon and too dangerous.

Police say don’t risk your safety and that of emergency responders.
