Boaters on at least three B.C. lakes are interfering with the firefighting activities of air tankers and water bombers, according to one official.

Al Richmond, the chair of the Cariboo Regional District, says there have been several reports of boaters, wind surfers and kayakers preventing the air tankers from landing to fill up with water.
And so on...


[Tangentally, the water rudders in that pic appear to be down - isn't there a 2-4 in there somewhere?]
