The Georgina Island Storytelling Project

Our stories celebrate our heritage and identity as Chippewa people. They preserve and teach our Indigenous ways of knowing and knowledge for the future generations of Georgina Island. In the tradition of oral history over generations, our youth - in their turn - will carry on this legacy to protect and share our proud history and who we are as the Chippewas of Georgina Island.

FLOOD WATCH

WATERSHED CONDITIONS STATEMENT

FLOOD OUTLOOK

 

Date:   April 16, 2018

Time:   2:00 p.m.

 

The Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority advises that the watershed has received mixed precipitation in the range of 60-80 mm from the passing system since the Watershed Conditions Statement was issued on Wednesday, April 11th.  The system will continue to drop precipitation across southern Ontario today (Monday April 16th) with 10-20 mm of rain forecast across the golden horseshoe area, including parts of the Lake Simcoe watershed.   Additionally, some watercourses in the watershed continue to contain pieces of ice due to the unseasonably cold temperatures experienced over the past few weeks.

 

The 10-20 mm of rain forecast for today, combined with the melting of accumulated snow and ice over the next several days, will result in higher than normal water levels and flows in our rivers and streams.  The combination of slippery and unstable banks, cold water temperature and reports of ice remaining in some watercourses will create hazardous conditions close to any river, stream or other water bodies, especially in the vicinity of bridges and culverts.  There remains a potential for flooding in low lying areas.  Children should be warned to stay away from all watercourses.

 

This Watershed Conditions Statement will be in effect through Thursday April 19th, 2018.

Ahneen! Well, it is hard to believe that it is already time to say Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year.

As we celebrate this holiday season, we want to extend our best wishes to everyone for a safe, happy and healthy Christmas with family and friends. As we reflect back on the year, and the many challenges we have faced in years gone by as a community, we have remained strong and determined. This can be a difficult time for those who are missing loved ones, and so we take the time to give thanks and special acknowledgements to those who have passed on. Let us use this time to reflect and count our blessings. We give thanks to our youth, our veterans, elders, and women and men who have contributed so much over time.

The greatest gift we could exchange this season is to serve one another.

May we ask you all to remember your neighbours at this time of year, especially the elderly and those who live alone.

We would also like to extend a special welcome to those who have come home to Georgina Island for the holidays to be with family and hope that you have a wonderful time.

Our very best wishes go to those who are sick at home or in hospital this Christmas and we wish you a speedy recovery.

To all who are spending Christmas away from the island, we would like to extend Christmas greetings from Georgina Island.

From your Council and your dedicated Band staff, we wish you and your family all the love and blessings of the season.

Merry Christmas!
