With the assistance of the provincial motor vehicle branch, the school has been using videotape equipment to show traffic situations and driving problems. The instructors were trained with this equip- ment and other up-toAiate. methods under a Young Drivers of Canada (YDC) program at Royal City Driving School Ltd. in New Westminster. Their training, paid for by the Indian affairs department, included work on driving simulators as well as on streets and highways. They qualified as provincial driving instructors and YDC instructors. Norm Moody, operator of Royal City and western regional director of YDC, said he believes his four graduates are the first on such a program in North America. The farmer wants to please the consumer because he is paid by the consumer and because the consumer demand for his products either increases or decreases the price he receives for his products. Water sport dangerous without jacket Sink or Swim? Without a government approved life jacket the fellow who accidently falls out of the boat will probably sink. Twelve Lethbridge stores carrying boating equipment were surveyed by The Herald and five were found to stock Canada ministry of transport (MOT) approved bfe preservers. Two other store managers said they usually have them but are out of stock and another sporting goods store carries only government approved water ski jackets. Among those who carry the MOT approved jackets are Eatons, Simpson-Sears, Woolco, Zellers and Hoyt's Hardware store. Gotschna Ski Haus carries only the MOT approved ski jackets. There are flotation devices labelled Small Vessel Regulation Life Jackets, which are approved by MOT. By law, these devices must be carried on board pleasure craft, except rowboats, canoes or foreign registered craft in Canadian waters. The performance requirement of the approved jackets is that they turn the wearer to a safe flotation position if he should fall into the water. Other flotation devices not approved by MOT are called Personal Flotation Devices or PFD's. There is a govern- ment standard for these but compliance with the standard is only voluntary. There is no legislation requiring the PFD's to meet the standard or be MOT approved. The government approved jackets come in sizes small, medium and large and are available in two styles, the traditional vest and a slab variety with a keyhole type opening for the head. The slab must be worn on the front of the body to keep the face above the water. A news release from the Consumers' Association of Canada suggests before purchasing any life saving device, the buyer should try it on in the store to determine if it fits properly and is easy to fasten. The consumers' association also suggests that before buying the life jacket, ensure that it can be returned if it does not perform adequately. It urges jackets be tested before a water mishap occurs. If you have a life jacket in your basement and are not sure if it works properly, the association says test it The consumers' association says to wade into water about chest deep, bend your knees as if to sit down and let the buoyancy of the device support you. The device should incline you in a backward position with your mouth clear of the water. If your mouth is not clear of the water, get a new life jacket, say the association. If you make this test with a new jacket and it doesn't work properly take it back to the retailer.
