Toronto - Anne Leonard

November 8, 2004


Toronto – delegates from across the province will meet today to share information about the future of impaired driving in Ontario.

“Changing Landscapes” is the selected theme for this year; and will invite discussion on changing modes of transportation, changes to the service of alcohol, changes regarding the choice of drug for the impaired driver, and lastly, will look at the status of several newer prevention strategies (eg: ignition interlock, remedial measures). Special guests will include Dr. Doug Beirness from Traffic Injury Research Foundation and Dr. Barry Logan, Director, Forensic Toxicology Services Bureau, Washington State Patrol.

Media awards will be presented over lunch to radio, television, and print media for their support. OCCID appreciates all the support provided by media but can only recognize one company in each.

OCCID gratefully acknowledges the Ministry of Transportation as a lead sponsor in the conference
