THE JESSICA CAMPAIGN
The Jessica Campaign (“TJC”) is a public advocacy for long overdue upgrades to motor vehicle safety standards and legislation across North America. Started in Canada following the preventable and needless death of 21-year-old Jessica Holman-Price, M.B., TJC continues to strive to become a leading force behind Canada’s Vision Zero Goals. Since her daughter’s death, Jeannette Holman-Price, has lobbied tirelessly across North America for our legislators to use the tools that they readily have at their fingertips. It is the mandate of the United States-Canada legislators to ensure their two governments meet the fundamental responsibility of protecting the safety and welfare of their citizens. Until the required updates are made to both countries’ legislations, TJC will continue to lobby for the prevention of needless injuries and fatalities on our roads. TJC is partnering internationally with safety and design experts, with families and industry leaders who have the similar goals of : ensuring that each and every one of us reach our destinations safely every time; ensuring each family has a better chance to see their loved ones grow to reach their potential, knowing the governments are doing everything they can to keep them safe. That is, after all, why we turned our communities into constituencies and demand that our leaders lead by example. Please look around our website and before you leave go to our SUPPORT PAGE and see how you too can make a difference. There is power in numbers! Thank you!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!! Our e-petition has been signed by well over the required number and it will soon be formally presented to the Parliament of Canada.
On August 1, 2017, Jeannette Holman-Price initiated this official parliamentary petition regarding the mandatory use of truck side guards in Canada. Her petition is sponsored by Member of Parliament Mona Fortier.
This petition could be a game changer by persuading our Government to finally mandate the compulsory use of truck side guards and SAVE LIVES!
The full petition can be read here. Again, thanks to all of you who signed.
