Teens with toy gun face charges after school locked down
By Matthew Ramsey, The Province
Published: Thursday, May 03, 2007

Chilliwack - Two teens who brought a toy gun to Chilliwack Middle School on Thursday afternoon have some serious explaining to do.
A teacher at the school called police at 2:30 to report seeing the two young people with what appeared to be a handgun.
That call prompted a massive police response which included dogs and an RCMP helicopter. Police locked the school down and searched it until they found and arrested the duo without incident. The two were in custody Thursday afternoon and will be charged. It was not clear whether they are students at the school.
The police treat these matters very seriously," said Const. Bert Paquet. "Bringing these items to school is not a smart move.
Paquet said said staff and students were not at risk.

This scared me. I felt scared and helpless as I couldn't do anything but pray my daughter was and would be ok. My middle daughter lives in Chilliwack and goes to the middle school. They already had a threat of guns on the 25th of April and she stayed home that day. Being in Victoria a ferry ride away all I can do is wait and listen for more news. I am relieved that they were toy guns and I hope those two kids suffer imeasurably, what the hell were they fricken thinking? Thankyou God for watching over my kids. Funny my youngest said her sister would be ok cause she has a connection with her sister and if something was wrong she would feel it. Is that not the sweetest thing? I love when my kids talk like that about one another, cause me and my siblings did not get along growing up. I still can't get along with my drama spoiled princess sister. My brother we have had our moments but we always get over our anger. He's one of the strongest people I know!

I'm glad your children are O.K. I can't imagine what you must go through as a mother when this kind of thing happens.

Sounds like you've got a great pair of kids who look out for eachother. I grew up with 3 older brothers, than a younger brother came along and finally a sister when I was 14. When it was just me and my older brothers, we got into trouble and I being the youngest, always seemed to get caught, but didn't ever really start anything. Anyway, I hope you don't have another scare like that again.

I forgot about another call we had at my youngest daughter's school -- a mountain lion on the playground -- this too is scary.

I understand your fears -- a couple years back a gunmen took over the office at my daughtters school -- his estrnged wife worked in the office -- he took her into another room -- killed her and then himself --- it was a long gut wrenching process. I knew what was going on to a point only because i am in law enforcement. Baby, you tell your children what they should look for and what they should do -- you cant keep them home and you cant send them to school with body armor. The chances are your children will never be exposed to such violence. BUT WE WILL ALWAYS WORRY AS PARENTS. It is the nature of the situation -- we will always worry. I wish I could give you a magic spell or potion -- I wish I had one for myself.
