In a series of publicity photos taken by Liberal leader Justin Trudeau’s personal photographer while Trudeau was in Inuvik, were a few showing Trudeau and his son riding a snowmobile:
Justin and Xavier go snowmobiling in Inuvik. January 10, 2015 (see here)
But what caught my attention was although his son is wearing a helmet, Trudeau himself does not so I did a little digging and found this:
TOWN OF INUVIK BY-LAW #1538/TR/98
The operator of, and any passenger being carried or towed by an all-terrain vehicle
within the town, shall at al times wear a protective CSA approved helmet when the
all-terrain vehicle is in motion.
And there’s also a matter of having a proper license:
No person shall operate an all-terrain vehicle on a highway, or in any other public place within the town, unless such person holds a valid Town of Inuvik All-Terrain Vehicle Operator’s Permit or a valid drivers’ permit issued by the Registrar of Motor Vehicles. (see here)
You’ll remember the Media Party going ape when PM Stephen Harper went for an ATV ride (see here) so there’s no way they will let this slide, right?
