MADD volunteers team up with RCMP  to launch Red Ribbon campaign

Kings District RCMP Constable Bob Honkoop ties a red ribbon to the antenna of one of the police vehicles at the Brudenell Detachment to officially mark the beginning of the Red Ribbon Campaign. As the Charlottetown and Eastern PEI Chapters of MADD and Kings District RCMP kick off the awareness campaign, the motto no alcohol, no drugs, no victims is the most important message, said vice president Maxine MacLennan. The campaign’s aim is to bring awareness to the tragic consequences that can come from getting behind the wheel in an impaired condition, said RCMP Corporal Alexis Triantafillou.

MADD Canada Chapters across the country distribute over a million ribbons and red ribbon car decals to Canadians to wear and display as a reminder to drive safe. Charlotte MacAulay photo
