I'm sending you this letter to express our gratitude for the article you wrote about our YIELD program (On the Right Track, Vol. 75, No. 4, 2013).
We've received inquiries and comments from across Canada about the unique method of reaching out to our youth for education and road safety. The comments have come not only from members of the RCMP, but other individuals who recognized the value of being able to make a connection with youth in our schools and at the race tracks.
We've received numerous invitations to areas where we've not had the chance to visit in the past. We've also received a limited amount of funding from private citizens as a result of your article.
Thank you for your interest in our program.
