Roadside memorial for victims of impaired driving unveiled

Saskatchewan’s first roadside memorial signs for victims of impaired driving were unveiled on Tuesday, August 29 to honour the memory of the Van de Vorst family.
In January, 2016, Jordan and Chanda Van de Vorst, and their two children, Kamryn, 5, and Miguire, 2, were killed by an impaired driver.

Roadside memorial signs showing the family’s names and MADD Canada’s red ribbon were installed on both the north-bound and south-bound lanes of Highway 11 near the Wanuskewin Road intersection. The signs will serve as a symbol of remembrance and a reminder to the public about the dangers of impaired driving.
At an unveiling ceremony on August 29, Linda Van de Vorst, Jordan’s mother, said not a day goes by that she doesn’t think of the loved ones who were stolen from her and her family.
“I always wondered why someone was not bold enough to take Ms. McKay’s keys away from her and help her find another ride home,” said Linda. “I hope and pray that these signs unveiled today will be a powerful tool and another giant step in making individuals aware that the names on these signs are real people who had their lives snuffed away in the blink of an eye.
“Life is very precious. We seldom have a second chance, so let’s make the right decision the first time.” Continue reading “Roadside memorial for victims of impaired driving unveiled”
