PINERY SPOKESPERSON ON CLOSURE 11/10/2017 3:05:15 PM
A few individuals have informed the Ministry of their intent to block access to the Pinery Provincial Park near Grand Bend. Because of this, the Pinery is closed to the public for camping and day use opportunities until further notice. Outreach Specialist with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, Karen Passmore tells myFM what the next steps are.
The Ontario Provincial Police have been informed of the occupation and an OPP Spokesperson has confirmed to myFM News that the occupation is a First Nations Land Claim but could not specify which First Nation was involved. Anyone looking for updates can visit ontarioparks.com/park/pinery
