HSAS and MADD Canada launch summer campaign against impaired driving
Regina, Saskatchewan – The Health Sciences Association of Saskatchewan (HSAS) and Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Canada are teaming up this summer to urge Saskatchewan motorists not to drive while impaired by alcohol or drugs. The two organizations launched a public awareness campaign on Friday with the release of new posters and a radio public service announcement (PSA).
“The Health Sciences Association of Saskatchewan is proud to join with MADD Canada in urging Saskatchewan residents not to drive while impaired by alcohol or drugs,” says Chris Driol, President of HSAS. “The 2,700 health care professionals who form HSAS care deeply about the lives, health and safety of our families and friends in Saskatchewan. We have seen first-hand the tragic results of impaired driving and hope that this campaign will encourage people not to drive while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.”
The organizations’ public awareness drive runs through the Labour Day holiday weekend.
