    Booster Seat Legislation

    So in less than a month my province of New Brunswick will be enforcing booster seat laws. The thing is, I don't think anyone is even aware. I'm wondering how your provinces prepared for this?

    I have yet to see an ad (other than a small block in a TRU flyer) a TV commercial any mailouts, radio spots on this. This makes me really mad! Don't get me started on our provincial Government right now after this whole French Immersion fiasco!

    So I just wanted to hear about how your provinces prepared for this?

    I remember Ontario had it commenced on Sept 1 so lots of ads, school write-ups, etc. to coincide with the start of the school year.

    Re: Booster Seat Legislation

    Thanks I just emailed the Minister of Public Safety to find out how they're planning on enforcing it if no one is aware? I think sending something home with every K-3 student would be one of the easiest ways. Hmmn. I know the principal of our school, maybe I'll give him a call to send out a school wide voice mail to inform everyone.
