Resident Brings Madd Message To Fort St John

Resident Brings MADD Canada Message to Fort St John   Fort St John, BC – MADD Canada is pleased to announce Melissa Dunn as its new volunteer Community Leader in Fort St John, BC.   In the role, Ms. Dunn is part of a nation-wide network of volunteers who represent MADD Canada and deliver its message and programs to local communities.   “Our Chapters and Community Leaders undertake a diverse range of activities within their communities to help achieve MADD Canada’s mission of stopping impaired driving and supporting the victims of this violent crime,” said MADD Western Canada Regional Manager, Tracy Crawford.  “They truly are the heart and soul of our organization. We are proud to welcome Ms. Jones to our amazing and dedicated volunteer team.”   As a new Community Leader, Ms. Dunn will focus much of his initial efforts around public awareness and education initiatives and building partnerships with stakeholder and community organizations with similar goals of ending impaired driving.    Crashes involving alcohol and/or drugs are the leading criminal cause of death in Canada. On average, approximately 4 people are killed each day in crashes involving alcohol and/or drugs.   “These deaths and injuries are completely preventable. They can all be avoided if people do not get behind the wheels of their vehicles impaired,” said Dunn “I want to be part of the solution and I am confident that Fort St John will be supportive of the effort to stop these senseless tragedies from occurring on our roads and in our community.”   About MADD Canada MADD Canada (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) is a national, charitable organization that is committed to stopping impaired driving and supporting victims of this violent crime. With volunteer-driven groups in more than 100 communities across Canada, MADD Canada aims to offer support services to victims, heighten awareness of the dangers of impaired driving and save lives and prevent injuries on our roads.     For more information, please contact:   Melissa Dun at 1-800-665-6233 ext 365 or FSJMADD@gmail.com

The Peace River Highway Of The North

New exhibit on now at the Fort St. John North Peace Museum!   Before roads, rivers were the highways of First Nations and early settlers. Birch bark canoes allowed First Nations to travel swiftly. Steamboats could travel over 500 miles along the Peace River from the chutes near Fort Vermillion to gates at Hudson’s Hope. This exhibit looks at over twelve boats, steam and gas powered, that used to navigate up and down the Peace River.    Watch a slideshow of archival photographs, and listen to the sounds of steamboats. See what a dining table on the D. A. Thomas may have looked like. Try on a life jacket and see how it compares to one from over 100 years ago.
