“If you’ve been drinking, please make the right choice to get home safely,” Linda says. “You could save a life. Or an entire family,” Lou adds.

The campaign, which runs throughout February, includes a 60-second video that airs on television, online and in movie theatres.

The message will also be spread through radio, billboard and newspaper advertising along with mirror decals placed in certain licensed establishments across the province.
