August 30, 2010- Toronto, ONSmartBoater.ca and the Lifesaving Society urge Canadians both young and old to wear their lifejackets when on or near the water. There is still plenty of summer left and they want to ensure that everyone safely enjoys their on-water activities.

Water safety starts with watching your children at all times when they are near the water and keeping them within arm’s reach. And when you are out on the water, make sure that you and your children are all wearing lifejackets.

And if you think smog stays outside, think again.
