“When people think about driving impaired they think about a car on the road. But operating a boat while impaired is just as dangerous and illegal.”
– Jaymie-Lyne Hancock, President – MADD Canada
“From powerboats, to sailboats, to paddle craft, we know Canada’s waterways will be busy. It’s important for Canadian boaters to know the rules of the road, who has the right of way, and how to be self-sufficient with the right equipment aboard in case something should happen.”
– Stephanie Rankine, Canadian Safe Boating Council.
“We know time spent outside is good for us. With a variety of shutdowns in place due to Covid, there’s a surge in outdoor activities, paddling included.”
– Michelle McShane, Executive Director – Paddle Canada
