Violence in schools a growing concern, Newfoundland and Labrador Federation of School Councils says

The Newfoundland and Labrador Federation of School Councils (NLFSC) says the bear spray incident at Prince Of Wales Collegiate (PWC) in St. John’s on Wednesday points to a bigger issue of violence and behaviour issues in schools across the province.

During recess Wednesday morning a number of students gathered outside PWC expecting to see a fight ended up being hit with bear spray after one person who was supposed to be part of the fight fired a stream of spray at another person, hitting others nearby and affecting even more when the orange substance was carried by the wind.
