Principal reassures students after teen allegedly planned school attack on Montreal Massacre anniversary

Steve Yee, principal of Oakwood Collegiate Institute
The principal of a Toronto high school says he wants students to "feel safe" after a 17-year-old boy was charged with planning to attack the school on the 27th anniversary this week of the Montreal Massacre.

"It is a situation that certainly is concerning in terms of the potential threat that was reported," Steve Yee told reporters Thursday. "I wanted to make sure that they hear from me as a principal."

The boy, who appeared in court Tuesday, was released under his parents' supervision. He has been charged with uttering threats of bodily harm and uttering death threats.

He cannot be identified under provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

The Toronto District School Board confirmed that the boy attends a school in the district, but wouldn't say if it is Oakwood Collegiate Institute.  (more...)
