MADD Canada and Eskasoni First Nation dedicate a white cross Nov. 17 in memory of a young community member who was killed by an impaired driver. On Oct. 9, 1999, Noreen Michelle Paul was walking home with a friend when she was hit and killed by an impaired driver. The 19-year-old was within sight of her house when she was struck. A white cross bearing Noreen’s name is dedicated as both a tribute to the young woman who lost her life, and as a reminder to all of the deadly consequences of impaired driving. “We are honored to work with the Eskasoni First Nation to establish this touching memorial,” said Susan MacAskill, MADD Canada Chapter Services Manager for the Atlantic Region. “Together, we celebrate her life, and we grieve her tragic and senseless loss.”
