2000: Sept 27, 2000 - Davidson Road School parents make long trek to school
Pixton Road parents along with Okanagan Centre parents who are on the fringes of the 4.8 km walk distances that are being enforced here in the province of British Columbia are determined to have School District #23 trustees address the anomalies of a rural 4.8 km walk to school as opposed to the same regulations being in place on urban areas where sidewalks, lighting and slower speed zones don’t jeopardize the safety of those children who walk to school.
We demand that changes be made. The elected officials of School District #23 and its employees need to put the safety of our children at the top of their priority list. We are determined to have this issue addressed, said McKay.
