Letter: Be Proactive with Big Tub Light

The Cole Shoal Lighthouse was built in 1856 on the St Lawrence River near Brockville, ON. The lighthouse, which was the last remaining of the 1856 series, completely burned this past summer after an apparent lightning strike.


We are recently new neighbours to Tobermory. This year we lost our lighthouse on the St Lawrence… one of the oldest, or oldest, in Canada.

Please be proactive with the Big Tub light. Once it’s gone, a close friend, you will never get it back.

Brockville resident,

John deFayette
