Lighthouses To Remain Staffed

Senate Committee Report Stops De-staffing of Lighthouses

Apparently the Senate Committe listened to the concerns of coastal Canadians on the matter of removing people from the Lighthouses on the Coast.

Given the importance of having a real live person manning these lighthouses the committee could not support the Canadian Coast Guard plan to replace all lighthouse keepers with automated systems.

Of course this is still a political decision and a change of government, now or later could make de-staffing an issue once again at a later date, for now manned lighthouses will still keep watch on our coasts.
