(November 19, 2021) – Loyola O’Driscoll, PC Official Opposition Shadow Minister for Digital Government and Service NL and MHA for Ferryland, today expressed quiet reflection on the National Day of Remembrance for Road Crash victims, Sunday, November 21, 2021.

“Sadly, we have seen too many lives lost on our roadways as a result of accidents, many of which are preventable,” said O’Driscoll.

“So many families have been needlessly shattered, left with pain and loss.”

O’Driscoll joined all his colleagues in the PC Caucus to encourage people to drive responsibly, do not drive impaired, drive to road conditions and avoid distractions while behind the wheel.

“Hopefully, by raising awareness, we can end the cycle of injury and death on our provinces roads. Too many families have opened their front door to face a police officer with bad news,” said O’Driscoll.

“We all have a role to play to improve safety.”

Pleaman Forsey, PC Official Opposition Shadow Minister for Workplace NL and MHA for Exploits, joined O’Driscoll in remembering those tragically lost on the province’s roads.

“Everyone who leaves for work in the morning deserves a safe return home. With great sadness, we recognize that is not always the case. Together, we can all make our roadways safer by doing our part to slow down, follow posted signs, and be aware of those we share the roads with,” said Forsey.

“My deepest condolences, on behalf of the PC Official Opposition, to the family and friends of those no longer with us today.”
