Located in the Glen Eden Memorial Gardens in the Rural Municipality of West St. Paul, this Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) memorial commemorates victims of impaired crashes. The names engraved on the monument commemorate the innocent lives lost on Manitoba roads. It was unveiled on 28 August 2016 by MADD Canada CEO Andrew Murie before a group of government officials, law enforcement officers, MADD personnel, and family and friends of crash victims.
