Yet another reason why I prefer Russia to Canada

CTV.ca | Federal minister calls for school swim lessons

Swimming lessons should become part of every child's education, says the federal minister of state responsible for public health.

Carolyn Bennett is calling for swim lessons to be part of the school curriculum and for the federal government to help fund the initiative.

"In this country that is covered in swater, it seems like it should be like reading and writing," Bennett said.

Ooookay, so what's next? Will Canadian taxpayers need to pay for all government school students to learn how to skate? (And what's "swater" anyway?)
