Penny Coles Niagara Advance Jet boat tours have been halted at the Queenston dock, just days after tour operator John Kinney received a ruling against his appeal to the Niagara Escarpment Commission over its refusal to allow him the new building he was planning. Last Thursday Kinney said it was business as usual in Queenston, but by Monday he had moved all jet boat tours booked to leave from Queenston to the Melville St. dock. Kinney, president of Whirlpool jet boat tours, says there is no relationship between his decision and the finding from the hearing officer that the use of the Queenston dock must be limited to the level of activity there in 1985.
