A new website at https://keepkeewatinhome.ca has been launched in an effort keep the 113 year old passenger steamship S.S. Keewatin in Port McNicoll.

The website includes a link to a new House of Commons petition directed to the Minister of Canadian Heritage which calls for the Government of Canada to ensure S.S. Keewatin remains in Port McNicoll. “It is available to residents of Simcoe County, regardless of age” said Travers. “Each signatory merely needs their own email address.”

#keepkeewatinhome is an independent public interest group in support of, but not affiliated with, the registered charity Friends of Keewatin (The RJ and Diane Peterson Keewatin Foundation).
