    Canadian Lifesavers!?

    Would anyone be interested? How would we go about planning one? I know some of us have talked about it but I thought I would mention it here as well

    Lifesavers is huuuuge and really encompasses a number of fields beyond just child passenger safety. I, for one, am looking forward to Lifesavers 2008 only being 5 hours (driving) away from me next year! See you all there?!

    Join Starlight's Book Club, read your manuals! Car seats are cheaper than caskets & you can use them more than once. How much did your wedding cost? How long did it last? Does your child's safety seem more affordable now?

    I can't imagine spending the money to go to Chicago, for example (2007).. I've never gone, but I plan on going 2008 since it's close to home. I know a bunch of people from this site went this year!

    Re: Canadian Lifesavers!?

    These are the various workshop categories that were at the 2007 Lifesavers conference. I copied the list of workshops for the Impaired Driving category.

    Is there any kind of annual conference in Canada that addresses all/some of these issues? If there was it might be something that we could build on.
