Scouts Canada was recently fined $36,000 for failing to comply with the Safe Drinking Water Act relating to facilities at its Camp Peacehaven.  Volunteers put in many hours to comply with the law and Scouts Canada spent over $90,000 trying to upgrade its water system.

However,  the Safe Drinking Water Act  does not consider this an acceptable excuse — the camp had to have a fully compliant drinking water system, or close. It closed.
