    You don't have to do a thing. Just forewarning of likely changes that will affect those that have boats with engines >10hp and/or longer than 6 meters, and groups that offer courses and testing for the Pleasure Craft Operator's Card. The changes involve fees, so don't worry, if you are affected by these changes the government will surely contact you to collect their new fees.

    I don't know why they didn't check for it. They sure could have. Federal Fisheries Officers ask for them every time. Along with 2" letters and numbers afixed to both side boards of the boat,Sect 101 (a) (b) and (c) Small Vessel Regs. require licenses to be carried on board.

    T21 . I always have it on the boat. Each boat. I agree they could have, I had it ready, but they didn't bother to look. Did not check for anything else on the boat either, lifejackets etc. It is a relatively new Lund , with most of the safety stuff visible, fire extinguisher, etc, so I assume that they had bigger fish to fry. It was obvious that they did not care about the state of the boat, only the operator.

    I have been checked several times and have yet to be asked about registration etc.. I keep everything in the watertight bailing can that has a rope, flashlight etc....on board.

Now,the government is proposing to "enhance" (more Liberal bullshyte) the PCOC to make it a license,too,so it can be suspended much like a driver's license. Just what we need,more useless federal programs to burn up taxes.
    Would the revenue from fine's not go to the provincial Government.

    That's the way it used to work. All ticket revenue written by the OPP went to Ontario,tickets written by city coppers went to the city and federal officer's tickets went to Ottawa.
