Nov 19, 2014 - MADD CANADA MARKS NATIONAL REMEMBRANCE DAY FOR ROAD CRASH VICTIMS


It’s a tragedy that can affect each and every one of us: Wednesday is the National Day of Remembrance for Road Crash Victims.

While the official ceremony is taking place in Toronto, Alberta will have its own vigil in Fort McMurray Wednesday night at MacDonald Island Park.

The day does not just remember those who’ve been killed in impaired driving crashes, but they make up a large number of those being mourned.

MADD Canada President Denise Dubyk says four people are killed by drunk driving in this country every day.

“By recognizing today, we want people to realize that this is something that can be stopped, that it can affect each and every one of us. We all have an individual responsibility to stop this crime from happening,” she said.

The National Day of Remembrance website has a ‘tribute to victims’ section where loved ones can post in memory of someone they lost in a crash.

The website also has downloadable decals, safe driving tips, and an interactive ‘leave the phone alone’ pledge form.
