Canadian Popper "Jay" dedicates an awesome performance to a student who was killed by a drunk driver two weeks before his graduation

"Jay", a Canadian Popper dedicated this original performance to Anthony McColl (Tony), a student at Heritage College in Gatineau, Quebec, Canada, at the school's awards ceremony in April 2011.

Anthony McColl was tragically killed by a drunk driver only two weeks before his graduation ceremony. The students at Heritage College and the boy's father teamed up to raise $1,700 for MADD (Mother's Against Drunk Drivers). Every day, 4 Canadians are killed and 190 are injured as a result of drunk drivers. You don't have to be drunk to be impaired and cause a fatal accident.

Think about it.

Don't drink and drive.

Because of this sad loss, many students and friends made "I Promise" pledges to promise not to drink and drive or to let friends drink and drive. This may mean sometimes parking the car and calling a taxi, a friend, or a parent to pick you up. It may mean taking away someone's car keys. Remember, the person who is drunk will not be thinking clearly. It is your responsibility to act.
