I just opened up the 2015 official tide tables, and found that they are, for the first time, only in metric. Maybe I'm an old geezer, but I have always used feet for depth, and I hardly think I'm alone. This will have a huge impact on the boating community in Canada, recreational, commercial or otherwise.
And as we have a lot of our American friends cruising up and down our coasts, I can see some interesting situations developing.
Yes, I know there are other sources for tides and currents, but this is the only official source.
A glimmer of good news is that apparently one can contact someone in Ottawa to petition a change. I'll add a link that includes the name of the person to contact, although so far it hasn't worked for me.
