The RCMP has embarked on an innovative new way of interacting with Canada’s youth, in their very own classrooms.
‘RCMPTalks’ is a series of live, interactive video-conferences taking place in several Canadian schools in the coming months.
Each RCMPTalk conversation will allow students from up to six different Canadian classrooms per session to hold a discussion via social media, and pose questions to designated guests.
As part of National Safe Driving Week, there will be an ‘RCMPTalks’ session on impaired and distracted driving held Wednesday, December 4th from 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. AST. During this session, students from the New Germany Rural High School will speak with Angeliki Souranis, President of MADD Canada, and Brad Gorski, a 28-year-old male who was injured in a vehicle collision while texting and driving. The session will open with remarks from RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson.
These video-conferences are meant to enhance the RCMP’s approaches to educating, engaging and empowering youth on tough issues such as bullying, violence and impaired and distracted driving.
