On September 30th, the Sudbury Regional Police and Liaison Officer Victor Leroux visited Bishop Alexander Carter Catholic Secondary School to hand out "Think Bands". These are rubberized bands that can be wrapped around cell phones, ipods and other devices. These bands are a symbol to remind students to think before they post things to social media. Constable Leroux handed out over 140 bands and spoke to students about the importance of thinking about what they will post before they press send. Key questions students need to ask themselves include is the information true? Will what they post be hurtful to others? It is illegal? Is it necessary and is it kind?
