Protect Our Children Now
demand that the Newfoundland Labrador English School District (NLESD)
immediately cancel all bussing contracts with Carey’s Bus Service.
In April 2014 the Parole Board of Canada revoked the pardon of the founder of Carey’s Bus Service, Thomas Carey-convicted child rapist. It has now been shown (Jan. 2015) through an NLESD investigation, that Tom Carey drove a school bus. Even though the so called new directors (his son and daughter) assured the board that their father would have no access to the business. Once again proving to the Southern Shore parents that he continues to hold dominion over the business and decisions surrounding our children. It must end NOW!!
The NLESD represents approximately 67 000 students in NL and as such it is one of the highest authorities in our province which can speak to the safety and welfare of children.
Studies have found that most violent acts committed against children and youth are perpetrated by people who are part of the victim’s immediate environment (United Nations 2006).
The NLESD states that protection and safety of children is their number one priority. We demand that Darrin Pike, CEO of the NLESD stand behind that claim and immediately cancel Carey’s Bus Service contract.
