A school board in western Canada has cancelled all international trips planned for its students citing the recent terrorist attacks in Paris and California. High schools across Canada often organize trips abroad for their students and encourage fundraisers to help pay for them. This is regarded as a good educational experience.
But the Edmonton Catholic School District has informed staff that 20 trips that had been planned for this school year have been cancelled due to safety concerns. The Calgary Catholic School District has cancelled its trips as well but did not refer to terrorism in announcing its decision.
