National day of remembrance for Road Crash Victims

YELLOWKNIFE (November 14, 2017) - On average, five people die on Canada's roads each day. The National Day of Remembrance for Road Crash Victims is Canada’s way to remember and honour these victims and their families.

It is commemorated the third Wednesday each November and is solemn reminder of the often preventative nature of these tragedies. When it comes to driving, avoidable actions can save lives.
