Drinking in a canoe is illegal in Canada, but that could soon change

Friday, October 06, 2017

Additional Info

Tipsy canoeing may soon be a thing – at least, if the Canadian government relaxes some of its impaired driving laws.

Throughout Canada, it’s currently illegal to drink and boat. If you’re found to be under the influence while in a canoe, kayak, raft, or other recreational water vessel, it’s like being caught drinking and driving a car. That may change with a bill to decriminalize drunken boating that’s up for vote.
