Thank you!

We would like to thank all of our partner organisations for helping make our first annual vigil walk and exhibition for the National Day of Remembrance for Road Crash Victims a success. Specifically, we would like to thank Councillor Keith Egli, CACP Traffic Committee Chair and OPP Deputy Commander Larry Beechey, MADD Canada's president Angeliki Souranis, and perhaps most notably guest speaker Alain Gareau for sharing their stories and their experiences of the impacts of road crashes on our lives and the lives of our friends, families, and communities. We would also like to thank the City of Ottawa, MADD Canada, Transport Canada, the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario, OPP, RCMP, Ottawa Paramedic Service, Ottawa Police Service, Ottawa Fire Services, OC Transpo, CAA, Arrive Alive, IPromise, National Defence Road Safety, Right Bike, Citizens for Safe Cycling, EnviroCentre, Parachute, Walk Ottawa, and LifeSafer. Let's continue to work together to make Canadian roads safer for everyone.
