Boaters must be aware of closed areas...
“We are in post-9/11 environment. We have very strong intelligence teams gathering intelligence from all different kinds of places.”
The navy patrols Burrard Inlet 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This is who you will face if you stray to close to Olympics venues.
“They are looking for any sorts of threat, intrusions -- any mariners coming inside 50 metres of the controlled access zone,” Miller said.

Better safe than sorry. The times in which we live have changed thanks to a few bad guys. Hope if they were to catch any of those a$$ho$$$ on boats, that they are not read their rights as they are here by this administration these days!
