This long weekend is likely to be a busy one on the water as well as the highway.
Its also the start of Safe Boating Week. ‘
Reg Shortt of the Barrie Power and Sail Squadron says the biggest safety issue is on wearing life jackets.
Shortt says if your boat gets into trouble or the canoe tips over, its too late to be struggling to put a life preserver on.
He says there’s really no excuse because the life jackets made now are comfortable and stylish.
