This summer, Mounties will be ramping up enforcement on impaired driving.
Constable Rob Gardner says they will be looking out for impaired boaters as well.
Gardner notes that the summer season will be busy on the water, and RCMP will have patrols out making sure everyone is obeying the rules.
Gardner says operating a water-craft while impaired is a criminal offense under the Criminal Code of Canada. Gardner reminds boaters to also have a safe way home for themselves and their passengers.
