Transportation Minister Kathleen Wynne, centre, was joined by John Wrights and Samantha Harwood of Bessborough School to demonstrate how effective child booster seats can be in preventing injury in the event of a car crash. Under Ontario law, children under eight years old and weighing less than 80 pounds and standing less than 4-foot-9 are required to ride in a booster seat.
