U.S. suspends gun drills on Great Lakes

OTTAWA -- The U.S. Coast Guard has suspended machine-gun practice on the Great Lakes as Washington considers whether the live-fire drills pose an environmental danger to fish and a safety hazard for boats.

Foreign Affairs Minister Peter MacKay said yesterday Canada is concerned about possible lead poisoning of the lakes, noting that the use of lead shot and sinkers in fishing gear is already banned.

Canada has informed the United States about its environmental worries, he said. "We're concerned most particularly in the environmental aspect."
