KLEES: Family's Tragedy Impacts Us All

(Queen's Park) In the wake of yesterday's tragic drunk driving accident that left a mother dead and her three year old son in critical condition, Oak Ridges MPP Frank Klees, the PC Critic for Education and Citizenship & Immigration made the following statement:

"All Ontarians today join with heavily pained hearts with the family of Yan Zhang whose life was prematurely ended yesterday in what police have called a 'preventable tragedy' as a result of drunk driving.

"Yan Zhang's three year old son continues his struggle to cling to life and we join in spirit with her family and the entire Chinese Canadian Community in vigil by his bedside at the Hospital for Sick Children in the hope of his full and complete recovery.

"On behalf of Ontario Progressive Conservative Leader John Tory, I wish to extend our heart-felt condolences to the family of Yan Zhang at this terrible time of pain and ongoing suffering and concern for her son. I extend condolences as well to the Chinese Canadian Community that has rallied around Yan Zhang's family in love and support.

"This tragedy should inspire all Members of the Legislature to be mindful of the dire consequences of impaired driving and to renew our commitment to stamp out drunk driving, as expressed so well by Toronto Police Detective Paul Lobsinger."
