Prince receives Diamond Jubilee Medal

Norm Prince has been awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for his volunteer contribution to MADD Canada.

MADD Canada’s North Island chapter says Norm Prince, a 10-year dedicated volunteer, has been awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for his volunteer contribution to MADD Canada.

The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal is a visible and tangible way to recognize 60,000 outstanding Canadians of all ages and from all walks of life, who have built and continue to build this caring society and country through their service, contributions and achievements.

“We are thrilled that Norm won this award,” says Victoria Estrada, North Island chapter community leader, “Norm’s contribution to the community and especially to the youth has been invaluable.”

Norm became involved with MADD Canada over 10 years ago when a student at the Port Hardy high school he taught at was killed by an impaired driver. Norm saw first-hand the devastation this senseless death caused students, families and the community.

Prince, who moved recently to Union Bay, started the MADD North Island Chapter to provide valuable resources to the community, support victims and their families and educate the community about the dangers of impaired driving.

Norm plans to open a new chapter in this area.

Mothers Against Drunk Driving is a national, charitable organization that is committed to stopping impaired driving and supporting victims of this violent crime. With volunteer-driven groups in more than 100 communities across Canada, MADD Canada aims to offer support services to victims, heighten awareness of the dangers of impaired driving and save lives and prevent injuries on our roads.
