This Week's Industry Events are Worth the Read

This week's issue of Boating Industry Canada's News Week will bring you up to speed on what's happening in your industry across Canada this week. This is the last call to get on board with the Boating Ontario workshop, also a good time to schedule yourself for the BC Association's AGM. CPS-ECP graced the international stage to discuss safety and flare disposal, New Brunswick enjoyed a strong turnout at the Moncton Boat show and Port Credit, Ontario is ramping up for their spring boat show. Also in this issue we honour a member of our industry who is no longer with us with the loss of MD Marine's Francois Tisi. Good reading to you.
