OPP partners with Volvo dealer to offer child seat installation clinic. April 10th, 2012 @ 8:00am – 6:00pm
OPP partners with Volvo dealer to offer child seat installation clinic
Demonstrations intend to educate public and create awareness of laws
TORONTO, ON (April 9, 2012) – Ontario Provincial Police are partnering with Volvo of Oakville to offer a car seat installation clinic for area residents. The initiative will provide awareness of proper installation techniques and clarification of current laws.
The local initiative between the Burlington OPP and the Volvo dealership will offer demonstrations on how to correctly and safely secure infants, toddlers and young children, stressing the importance of having children of all ages and sizes properly restrained while in the vehicle. A roll-over simulator will be on site in order to demonstrate the reality of what can actually happen in the event of a collision. Officers will also recommend proper car seat adjustments for any interested members of the public who attend the clinics with their own vehicle regardless of make or model and will even be providing child seat recall notice information. Refreshments will also be provided.
“Volvo prides itself on its reputation for building safe, reliable vehicles and there should be no higher priority than the safety of our children,” says John Martins, President of both Volvo of Oakville and Hamilton Volvo who is pleased to welcome Burlington’s finest to his dealership, “We are honoured to be involved with an initiative that creates awareness of this important cause.”
Pet Restraint Systems will also be discussed with the assistance of a representative from M & G Pet Foods who will demonstrate various pet restraint products for vehicles. An unsecured pet is in danger of injury not only to itself but of other occupants in the vehicle as well.
The child seat safety clinic times are as follows:
Date: April 10th, 2012 @ 8:00am – 6:00pm
Location: Volvo of Oakville – 770 Pacific Road Oakville, ON L6L 6M5 905-825-8088

The crayfish feast is a traditional Swedish festivity marking the end of the summer. It is one of the most delicious and humorous Swedish cultural experiences you can have and now you can enjoy it right here in Toronto.
The concept is easy: get together with a few friends, eat lots of crayfish, drink beer and schnapps, and top it all off with some singing Bring your best singing voice, enter our Karaoke contest and enjoy our entertainment that for sure will help raise the fun factor.
This year we have added Canadian BBQ options for those who aren’t fans of kräftor (crayfish) but still eager to enjoy the unique ambiance of this Swedish tradition. As with all SCCC events, expect a fine feast!
We are returning to the same wonderful location as last year: the lovely, historic Sunnyside Pavilion, right on Lake Ontario. We will be in the small courtyard steps from the waterfront, are we are hoping for the perfect summer evening (we will move to the covered reception area in case of inclement weather).
