  1. I’d like to point out that its the “Muskoka River Water Management Plan”, not the “Muskoka R. Flood Plan” and the distinction is important because the plan has absolutely nothing to do with managing floods, as evidenced by MNRF’s Mara Kerry’s interview in the Huntsville Doppler recently, as well as the details in the plan itself.
