Safe Boating Awareness Week launch - Winnipeg Event

The 2014 Safe Boating Awareness Week Launch in Winnipeg went off without a hitch! With sunny skies and no wind, the media was able to enjoy the various displays at the event. This included an 18’ Lund Pro Angling boat compete with all the necessary safety equipment, a cold water immersion demo in a dunk tank by Dr. Gordon Giesbrecht, aka Professor Popsicle, and the Winnipeg Police Service’s vehicle complete with an alcohol specialist warning the effects of drinking and boating. With fantastic visuals, demonstrations and a Proclamation from the Province of Manitoba presented by the Provincial Minister, the various media outlets, both television and print press, had a lot to cover and promote.
