    poor st catherines turned to this when they tried to open up to more students from less priviledged backgrounds-then this is how they repay the gesture.

    Gilbert Wade has a long history for so young a man — and he was on bail when he carried a knife to this fight! Throw away the keys for his cell! And no bail for sure!

    @simone…really this is caused because st. catherines is opening to less priveleged…be real this could have happened anywhere…..and to make such a comment is ignorant….st. catherines have been having fairs for years….this was caused because of ignorance…like yours which the youths today have…..its caused by the mentality that things are settled with knives and guns no matter how petty… the poverty which instills these mindset into these youths….and ppl like you who cathegorized and label these youths….and no give them a chance to see that they can uplift themselves from their surrondings….

    With school events like that reports are that there were 25 police officers an 25 security guards were they all socializing with each other?everyone should have been search before entering the fair.


    I guess that they search whom they wish to search. I can recall my 7 year old telling me about the metal thing which the police passed in front and behind her and her friends clothing.
