CBC ON LINE article

In 2005, I lobbied the School Board to make modifications to the lockdown drill for elementary schools. Working with former Trustee Lynn Odysnki and the media, we were able to convince them that having a set drill for k-12 was not in the best interest of children and that the drill could be adjusted for younger children, without losing any of its effectiveness.

Across Canada, other schools are now facing the lockdown situation. Here is an article recently written on it. I'm quoted at the very end of the article.
