Media Advisory: Fredericton School Hosts Special Education Program from MADD Canada and Alcool NB Liquor on Risks of Impaired Driving

OAKVILLE, Ontario, April 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- For those who take the risk of driving after consuming alcohol, cannabis and/or other drugs, there could well be no tomorrow. That is the hard-hitting and emotional message delivered in a new School Assembly Program from MADD Canada and generously supported by Alcool NB Liquor (ANBL).

The program, titled No Tomorrow, educates students in Grades 7 – 12 about the risks and consequences of driving under the influence of alcohol, cannabis or other drugs.  

No Tomorrow’s tour of New Brunswick schools is being highlighted with a special screening at Carman Bliss Middle School in Fredericton on April 18. As Provincial Sponsor of the program, ANBL sponsors 56 presentations to students and schools around the province.

Media are welcome to attend the screening and speak with special guests, students and staff.
   
Date: Thursday, April 18 at 1:30 p.m.
Location: Carman Bliss Middle School, 615 Kimble Drive, Fredericton, NB E3B 0N4
Guests: Thomas Tremblay, Public Relations Specialist, ANBL
Susan MacAskill, MADD Canada Atlantic Regional Manager

No Tomorrow tells the story of bandmates Marcus, Corey, Trevor and Lee. After winning a contest to record a demo, they get an incredible chance to audition for a music school. Before their audition, Trevor has a few drinks. He is affected more than he thinks, and makes mistakes during the audition. Marcus is offered a spot at the school right away, and Corey and Lee are given an opportunity to re-apply next year. But Trevor, who was obviously impaired during the audition, is not offered a spot or chance to re-apply. The school has a zero tolerance policy for alcohol or drugs. Trevor storms off to the car. Marcus tries unsuccessfully to take the keys. Realizing he can’t stop Trevor from driving away, Marcus jumps in the car. What happens next changes all of their lives forever.

This fictional story is followed by powerful interviews with real-life victims who talk about their loved ones who were killed or seriously and permanently injured in impaired driving crashes.
