Break-up!

After heavy south and southwest winds late yesterday, Lake Temagami, the last holdout, was free of ice. Break-up is here.

There still may be ice in some back bays and floaters, for which boaters should be cautious, but otherwise the lakes are clear.

"This has been one of the longest break-ups in years," said Gerry Gooderham, long-time island resident on Lake Temagami. Gooderham had been sending in photos and reports from his island during break-up.

Journalist and Greenpeace co-founder dies

Journalist Bob Hunter, 63, who devoted much of his work to covering Temagami, died this morning of prostrate cancer in Toronto.

Hunter was a co-founder of Greenpeace and honoured in 2000 as one of Time magazine's top 10 ecoheroes of the 20th century. He covered Temagami for almost 20 years as both a columnist and a television reporter for CityPulse News.

Ice movement and some open water

Enough open water and broken-up ice allowed some boat travel for the hardy and brave in the Hub of Lake Temagami over the weekend. See Gerry Gooderham's photos at the links below.
