Here’s something you probably shouldn’t do as the president of a P.E.I. MADD chapter: roll through the streets of Summerside impaired.
Not that you should ever do that, but as an exemplary member of the world’s biggest organization committed to stopping drunk driving this is clearly inexcusable.
David Griffin, the volunteer president of MADD’s East Prince County chapter and 45-year veteran of the Summerside Police Services, was charged with impaired driving and immediately resigned in what can only be considered the most ironic work-related incident in the province’s history.
Widely considered a “model volunteer” and “good guy,” the organization is confident Griffin’s slip-up won’t affect their image. “This is an unfortunate incident but it doesn’t stop the important work we have to do,” said MADD CEO Andrew Murie.
We certainly hope not.
