Quebec honour roll student fights expulsion for bringing pocket knife to school

A 16-year-old Quebec honour roll student and his family are fighting his expulsion from school after Shawn Soucy accidentally left a pocket knife in his backpack following a morning of chores at the family farm.

The family is lobbying for changes to the Riverside School Board’s safe schools policy, which the Soucys call “unreasonable.”


Every kid I knew had a pocket knife.

I don’t recall any mass stabbings, nor any mass whittlings for that matter.
