p.3 editorial about Port of Entry for Upper Canada - ...During the late severe gale on Lake Erie, the "wind and waves" have made a breach through the point near the main-land - converted the Peninsula into an Island - and actually made a cut of 400 yards wide and 8 or 10 feet deep, almost at the very point where the proposed canal was to have been cut; and rendered nothing else now necessary, in order to secure a safe channel for vessels, and a good harbour on both sides, than the construction of a Pier on the West side, to prevent the channel from being filled up with sand. This information has recently been communicated by John Harris, Esq., of Long Point to his Excellency and by Him sent down to the House of Assembly.
