The fear of a school in lockdown can grip parents.
Two weeks ago, a Quebec CEGEP went into lockdown after a 911 call was made about a man acting suspiciously.
There was an arrest and there were no injuries, but it happened again — at two other schools in the province.
“It gives me kind of like PTSD from what you see in the news in the United States,” said Katherine Korakakis, a parent and the president of the English Parents’ Committee. “It’s just terrifying.”
Korakakis says when she watches events like these happening here at home and elsewhere, she can’t help but wonder, what if it happened at her children’s schools?
