Saskatchewan’s chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) held a ceremony to allow the family and friends of victims of impaired driving accidents to honour their lost loved ones.
The event was held at Saskatoon City Hall where a memorial monument was created in 2019. It has the names of 59 people who were lost to impaired driving, including two names that were added this year, according to a media release.
Speakers from the Saskatoon Police Service and the Saskatoon Fire Department were involved, as well as MADD Canada’s national president, Jaymie-Lyne Hancock.
Family and friends also participated in a candlelight vigil for all those who have been impacted by impaired driving.
