Everybody loves Canadians. Mainly because no other
nation has ever been known more for their pleasant disposition than
anything else. But now the pleasantries are landing one surfer on the
wrong side of the law.
David Crichton regularly paddles into the
Ottawa River for some cold freshwater fun. Unfortunately for Crichton,
the good Samaritans who stop to watch are dialing up 911 too quick and
too often. So often, in fact that Ottawa Fire Services have given
Crichton a stiff warning: one more false alarm for a water rescue will
bring a $4,000 fine.
