Re: “Life vest enforcement,”:


With the deaths on the water over this year’s Victoria Day long weekend, there seems to be only one simple solution. Make the wearing of life vests the law, the way seatbelts are the law for automobiles.


I believe that this is so much easier to enforce than checking to see if the vests are on board. All you need is binoculars to know if the law is being obeyed; there is no stopping, looking, etc. That takes time and we know that saved time is saved money.


Heck, the OPP are using binoculars to check for seatbelts in cars on the ramps to the highways right now. Let’s expand that practice to the water.
