Ice Atlantic has issued a safety notice advising that CCGS George R. Pearkes will be conducting harbour breakouts in Princeton and Indian Bay on Thursday and Friday.

The icebreaker will be leaving an open water track in the ice and anyone transiting the area should do so with caution.

“Depending on various conditions, the ice can be pushed instead of broken and ice can crack or break far away from the location where the icebreaker is working. This can cause risks for the safety of people and property,” the advisory states.
