Residents warned to stay off frozen lakes and ponds

 Saanich, BC ‒ Recent cold temperatures have led to several local lakes and waterbodies becoming tempting skating rinks. Residents are asked to keep safety top of mind when it comes to outdoor winter play.

It can be difficult to judge if a frozen lake or pond is in fact, safe to walk on. Weather conditions to create safe ice on lakes and ponds have not been met in Saanich. Please be safe and stay clear of ice on ponds or lakes.
