NDP slam Liberals over latest Surrey school shooting

SURREY — The New Democrat opposition is once again pressuring Premier Christy Clark’s Liberal government after someone shot a bullet through a window at East Kensington elementary school in South Surrey this week.

Last year a teenaged boy was shot at an elementary school basketball court, after hours, in Whalley and a Newton elementary school was hit by bullets during a drive-by shooting in which a 22-year-old man was injured.

The NDP issues regular press releases concerning shootings in Surrey, calling on the provincial government to tackle the violence.

“New Democrats have been taking the initiative in Surrey to bring forward concrete ideas and have repeatedly asked the premier to take major steps to end the gun violence in Surrey,” Mike Farnworth, the NDP’s public safety critic, stated Thursday in the latest press release. “The Clark government isn’t there for Surrey and surrounding area residents who have been living with this violence for far too long.”

School staff at rural East Kensington arrived at work Wednesday morning to find a bullet hole in a window and a bullet on the floor. Forensic identification officers seized the bullet for examination.
