Isabelle Hains and Stella Gurr Win Safety Advance in Canada
Dear Care for Crash Victims Community Members:
After years of citizen work fighting against overwhelming corporate and governmental resistance to making safer vehicles (15 Passenger Vans) there has been a victory in Canada.
“Two mothers, who fought for safe student transportation, after their sons were killed in 15-passenger vans, are calling an amendment to Canada’s Motor Vehicle Act a lasting legacy to their Boys’ memory. Isabelle Hains of Bathurst, New Brunswick and Stella Gurr of Nanaimo, British Columbia announced today that the federal Motor Vehicle Safety Act has been amended to include theMULTIFUNCTION SCHOOL ACTIVITY BUS. The “MULTIFUNCTION SCHOOL ACTIVITY BUS” (MFSAB) is now officially a new and distinct definition under Canada’s Motor Vehicle Safety Act effective February 11, 2015.”
And as previously reported see https://www.careforcrashvictims.com/blog-driven.php
It takes more than a village, and more than tragedies, to make progress in safety.
As these mothers have shown: it also takes love, work, and persistence.
