Saskatchewan MADD Chapter Presents Awards for Impaired Driver Prevention

by Shanine Sealey

Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) recently awarded Corman Park Police Services (CPPS) as MADD Canada’s 2021 Robert M. Soloman Award for Excellence in Public Policy. CPPS had been nominated earlier in the year in recognition for their significant contributions to help rid the roads of impaired drivers.

The Robert M. Solomon Excellence in Public Policy Award was created to help recognize a MADD Canada volunteer or group that has made an outstanding contribution to the advancement of MADD Canada’s federal or provincial/territorial public policy initiatives to strengthen impaired driving laws. The award is named in honour of Professor Robert Soloman, an internationally recognized expert in the anti-impaired driving field.

“Corman Park Police Services has proven dedication to stopping impaired drivers in their community, have adopted the position that all traffic stops must include mandatory screening regardless of the reason for the stop. They also work closely with our MADD Saskatoon Chapter on various initiatives. The detachment places the mobile 911 signs where an impaired driver was caught and moves them around the community, along with ongoing community awareness projects that they are part of and much more. We are so grateful for the excellent work they have done,” Bonnie Stevenson, MADD Saskatoon President, stated.

MADD Canada has also recognized Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) for their ongoing efforts to end impaired driving by awarding them with the 2021 Citizen of Distinction Award, which is presented to individuals, groups or organizations that have made significant contributions to the anti-impaired driving movement in Canada.

“We are so grateful for the excellent work SGI does to prevent impaired driving, the ongoing support of MADD Canada initiatives and the support SGI provides to our MADD volunteers,” said Tracy Crawford with MADD Canada. “MADD Canada is honoured to recognize SGI in this special way for everything SGI does to stop impaired driving and to support victims and survivors.”

SGI partners with MADD on multiple initiatives including; MADD Mobile, MADD Smashed Car campaigns, MADD Canada SmartWheels RV, The Van de Vorst Family Award, Positive Ticketing and School Program.
“SGI works tirelessly to make sure people understand the human cost of impaired driving,” said Don Morgan, Minister Responsible for SGI. “MADD Canada is a valuable partner in our fight to end impaired driving in Saskatchewan. It is an honour to receive this award.”
