MADD Canada continues to support and promote taxis as a highly valuable option for sober transportation. Our policy on this has not changed.
A recent media story included comments from a spokesperson who was speaking from the perspective of a mother with two daughters, and within the context of a recent Nova Scotia court case involving a cab driver accused of sexual assault. The comments do not represent a change in MADD Canada’s position and policies on taxis.
There was also some question regarding the conclusion of the relationship between #TAXI and MADD Canada. There is no connection to that case. That relationship ended late last year, well before and completely independent of the court case.
