You are being challenged by the OPP. They are asking all boaters, and anyone who heads out on the water to always wear a personal floatation device (PFD) or lifejacket. There have been 12 drownings on lakes across Ontario so far this year compared to five by this time last year. Safe boating begins before you head out onto the water. Wearing a lifejacket or PFD as a regular routine, is proven to save lives.
