IN THE the land of maple syrup, poutine and hockey, you can lose your driver’s licence and have you car impounded for canoeing drunk.
Well not anymore. Canadian officials are set to remove canoeing as a driving offence.
Currently Canadian police can hand out drink driving charges to tipsy canoeists.
Even if your licence was suspended, you could still paddle your canoe as it doesn’t require a licence under the law.
The move is part of the Government’s plans to legalise marijuana in 2018.
But don’t get too excited about downing a few bevvies on your next canoe trip as you will still be able to be fined for being intoxicated in public.
