MADD Canada Brings Presentation To Schools In Thompson

Mothers Against Drunk Driving Canada will be bringing a school assembly program to Thompson starting tomorrow.


The program includes a fictional story, as well as real-life examples, of the potentially devastating impacts of driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.


The fictional story, titled The Pact, tells the story of Zoe who struggles to fit in at a new school and ends up in a car with someone who had been smoking marijuana.


The story will be accompanied by the real-life stories of three people; Carol Grimmond, Craig Watson and Maia Vezina. Gimmond lost her mother in an accident caused by impaired driving, Watson lost his life, and Vezina was seriously injured.


The presentation tomorrow will be at both Burntwood and Juniper schools, at Riverside on Monday, and Deerwood on Tuesday.
