Ontario drownings 2010

overloaded - no jackets?
03 Aug - Simcoe Day Holiday Weekend Results In 4 Deaths On OPP-patrolled Roads, Waterways And Trails

Drownings are a year-round problem in Ontario, with many lakes and waterways.

Sure! If the OPP could be a presence on every lake in Ontario... With thousands of OPP officers, and millions of tourists, this is impossible.

It comes down to the public taking responsibility for themselves and loved ones. There have been 57 drownings in the province this summer. Ed's photo is a perfect example of this lack of common sense!

This photo, below, of three boats on a small lake, Aug. 27/09, demonstrates the traffic on waterways.

You cannot predict what will happen, nor can you predict behaviour of others.

Sadly where there is water there is a way to get in trouble in it!

Your point on life-jackets even on 'just for fun' vessels is good advice! W.C.C.
