MADD Canada and HSAS team to promote safe and sober travel
Regina, Saskatchewan – Health Sciences Association of Saskatchewan (HSAS) and Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Canada are completing their summer impaired driving campaign, with a final push in advance of the Labour Day long weekend to deliver their message for safe and sober travel.
“Have fun this last holiday weekend of the summer, but please drive sober on the roads and waterways, and don’t get in a vehicle or a boat with a driver who has been drinking,” says Margaret Miller, MADD Canada National President. “Whether you’re at the camp or cottage, or at a summer-end party, if you are drinking or high on drugs, don’t drive. Our partnership with HSAS has been invaluable. We have been able to deliver our message to more Saskatchewan residents, more often this summer. We all firmly believe that it is a message that serves as a life-saving reminder to those relaxing and partying.”
The joint awareness campaign included radio public service announcements. HSAS is a labour union representing more than 2,700 professional, technical and emergency medical services workers in Saskatchewan’s health care system.
