MADD is clearly turned into a prohibitionist association no matter what their spokespeople say. It’s always just a matter of time before good organizations such as these are taken over fanatics that twist the original mandate to suit their own purposes.
This “charity” is like so many others that have staff and management to pay, they have to expand to feed themselves and create new causes to justify their existence.
Examples of MADD’s muscle flexing just in the last year:
- Durham Police ticketing pub patrons waiting for their DD rides on the sidewalk here
- Random breath tests being pushed by Minister Rob Nicholson here
- Booze labels bill from PC MLA here
- BC’s new laws that expand police powers here
