Project Red Ribbon
Chapters and Community Leaders across the country have distributed millions of red ribbons over the past several weeks. I was fortunate to visit the Atlantic Provinces in early November to share in several Project Red Ribbon events. The awareness outreach ideas and energy demonstrated by the Chapters warmed my heart – not to forget the hugs. (Pictures can be seen on MADD Canada’s website and Facebook)
My home is in Calgary and you will have heard that the Alberta Government brought forward changes to strengthen impaired driving legislation via the passing of Bill 26 on December 6, 2011. So many, many volunteers and supporters have worked together for a lot of years to see this happen. Thank you for ‘hanging in there’.
Something became very clear to me, as we went through the legislative process with this bill. Our voices were heard in the province of Alberta, because of the dedication and passion of each and every MADD Canada volunteer across the country. There is mighty strength in realizing our goal together – to stop impaired driving and to support victims of this violent crime.
Wishing you a Peaceful, Loving Christmas Season – filled with Hugs and Hope.
Help stop impaired driving. If you see a driver you suspect is impaired, call 911.
