Students decorate Liquor Mart bags with holiday and safety messages

Approximately 200 of the brown paper bags used for purchases at Liquor Mart have been decorated with anti-drunk driving and other safety messages.

Continuing a holiday season tradition that began several years ago, Thompson RCMP distributed bags to students from six different schools in the School District of Mystery Lake as well as École La Voie du Nord. “Happy Holiday,” “Don’t drink and drive” and “Merry Christmas” were the most popular messages this year, according to the RCMP.

Thompson RCMP Const. Sandy Deibert urges Thompsonites to be safe over Christmas and New Year’s.

“While this holiday season will look a little different than we are used to, please help make the holiday season a safe one,” she said. “Don’t drink and drive and don’t be a distracted driver.” 

One of the best ways to ensure you have a safe way home is to arrange one while you are still sober by having a designated driver if you are planning to drink alcohol, Deibert says.
