Boaters: stay smart, stay safe this summer

Cape Breton Regional Police remind boaters to stay safe on the water this season, emphasizing that everyone who operates a motorized pleasure craft must carry proof of competency – a Pleasure Craft Operator Card or other certificate of competency – on board at all times.

Members of the CBRPS Marine Unit will patrol waterways during the summer, including this Canada Day weekend, on boat and Sea-Doo to monitor boating practices and enforce laws and regulations. Police will also have extra enforcement on the water to assist with special events. Boaters should be aware of all safety requirements and regulations for operating their pleasure craft – for example, the appropriate number and size of lifejackets and the need to use navigational lights after dark and in the fog.

Further information on the regulations for minimum safety requirements and other important details for boat users, including a copy of Transport Canada’s Safe Boating Guide, are available at www.tc.gc.ca/boatingsafety.

Police also remind boaters there is zero tolerance for impaired driving; similar to operating a motor vehicle, it is a Criminal Code offence to operate a boat while impaired by alcohol or drugs, punishable by the same penalties and consequences.
