In early 2013 Parks Canada announced significant reductions in the operating hours of the St. Peter's Canal, a very important link for boaters to access the Bras d'Or Lake.
Despite various marketing campaigns and events which encouraged boaters to sail on Bras d'Or Lake, the cuts went ahead significantly disrupting access.
