The Education on Substance Abuse Committee and MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) teamed up to present “Long Weekend” to SESS high school students on October 22.

“Long Weekend” is a film about four youthful friends who spend a weekend at the cottage in Ontario, using drugs and alcohol. A number of bad choices are made, which results in the death of one teen and another who becomes parlyzed.

MADD Outreach Field Representative Chaouki Hamka presented the film to the students, said, “The film relates the impact and consequences of impaired driving – and drives home the message how one bad choice can affect the rest of your life.”
