Constable Richard Bilcik of the Greater Sudbury Police Service administers a Breathalyzer to Barney the Bear. After given the all clear, Barney was free to take interviews from the media. Barney will remain at Marymount Academy where the students will care him for until he moves on to another OSAID School.

October 27, 2009 - Marymount Academy was the scene of a very special event on October 26, 2009 as “Barney” the Bear and new OSAID (Ontario Students Against Impaired Driving) Mascot was introduced to the Sudbury Community for the very first time.

Barney arrived by police escort accompanied by Ms. Nicole LaCroix, a member of the Provincial OSAID, Board of Directors.

Barney, an Issue Awareness Development Campaign Project, is starting his province-wide journey in Sudbury. Students at Marymount will be Barney's first official 'owners'-they will look after him, blog of his whereabouts on the OSAID website and post photos of Barney on his travels and pass him on the new 'owners' in other OSAID member schools.

Barney will travel from school to school, community to community and around the province. Where he goes is entirely for his 'owners' to decide.
