On July 3, 2008, three young males were killed in a drunk driving accident when their car went off the road near Minett, Ontario. A fourth passenger survived the accident with injuries. That afternoon, the four had shared approximately 31 drinks in three hours. This week charges were laid under the Liquor Licence Act against 16 individuals employed by Club Link and Lake Joseph Club. In this episode, students share their opinions on who should be held responsible in drinking and driving accidents. To prepare for this episode, students read an article by Karen Longwell in the Wednesday, January 14, 2009 issue of the Parry Sound North Star.
