Statement by the Minister of Education

    TORONTO, Sept. 16 /CNW/ - I am deeply saddened by today's tragic incident
at Bendale Business and Technical Institute. My thoughts and prayers are with
the victim, the victim's family, and all members of the Bendale school
community. I would also like to commend the Toronto Police Service and Toronto
District School Board staff for taking quick action to protect the children in
their care.
    Our top priority is the safety of our students. Violence in our schools
is unacceptable, and we will continue to do all we can to help prevent
violence and keep our students safe.

    Kathleen Wynne
    Minister of Education
