Port Credit HarbourAccording to digital news outlet www.insuaga.com, a new, full-service and modern Port Credit marina that will bring huge economic benefits to Mississauga is now one step closer to becoming a reality.

After a year-long wait, City of Mississauga officials learned that Ontario’s Ministry of the Environment had approved terms of reference for the required environmental assessment (EA) of the $75-million project.

The waterfront overhaul seeks to maximize the location’s advantage as Lake Ontario’s deepest natural harbour in making a new-look Port Credit Harbour a destination place that would attract boaters from all over. Hopefully, boaters would spend the day in Port Credit shopping and dining.

The environmental assessment must be approved by the Ontario government and while that goes on, Mississauga is looking to provincial and federal governments for money to complete the redevelopment plan, termed by City staff the 1 Port Street East Proposed Marina Project.

Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie has identified the Port Credit marina undertaking as one of Mississauga’s top two infrastructure priorities, the other being the re-instatement of a downtown loop as part of the Hurontario light rapid transit project.

She added the surrounding community is “incredibly supportive” of the plan, and that beyond the marina, the City is looking to create new land for parks and access to the waterfront.

“Our goal is to create a new destination for recreation, tourism and economic development,” said Crombie.

Glomex TV

Televisions on a boat are increasingly commonplace. With the simple-to-install Glomex Avior VT300 Omnidirectional TV/FM antenna from GA Communications, it's never been easier to bring analog and digital broadcasts onboard—at a price that's hard to ignore.

The most noticeable feature of the Avior VT300 antenna is its compact white, anti-yellowing radome. At only 4" dia. x 8" H and 8.8 oz., it's specifically made for smaller boats that can't accommodate large TV antenna domes and only need short range reception, depending on height and conditions. The amplifier allows the antenna to have an increase in gain with a 24.5 dB average to receive vertical and horizontal polarized TV signals simultaneously from 360°.
