Acclaimed astronaut speaks at SMARTRISK fundraiser

    TORONTO, Oct. 27 /CNW/ - He set a Canadian record for 18 hours in space

astronaut and aquanaut. Now Dr. Dave Williams brings his views on smart
risk-taking - along with some remarkable video from space - to SMARTRISK's
third annual Evening to Make a Difference at Toronto's Carlu on Oct. 30.
    As keynote speaker, Dr. Williams will talk about "taking risks, not
chances" in space and how NASA's approach to risk management parallels
SMARTRISK's approach to protecting Canada's youth. Dr. Williams will also
provide spectacular pictures and video of his space expedition. SMARTRISK
( is a national, charitable organization dedicated to
preventing injury with smart thinking. Injury is the leading killer of
Canadians aged 1-44.
