Lifejacket safety demonstration: Now that’s smart theatre!

Aboriginal Day activities included a demonstration of lifejackets and proper on-the-land safety.

Youth Centre Director Mike Millen and town events coordinator Colin MacGIllivary, served as actors, to demonstrate the proper way to prepare a travel plan, pack supplies, travel in a canoe and if need be, signal a rescue plane.

After the little play, the town of Inuvik donated hundreds of lifejackets to the public.

There are drownings every year on the Mackenzie River, so these are very important lessons.
