Effective June 30, 2016 the Municipality of Chatham-Kent has announced it will be eliminating all crossing guards throughout the municipality. The town of Dresden has a full-time crossing guard who is committed to providing a safe crossing for students on a daily basis. Chatham-Kent Children’s Charter of Rights states, “every child has the right to be safe and respected at all times and in all places, at home, school, on the internet and in public.” North Street which cuts through the heart of the community is the only road in Dresden which crosses the Sydenham River. Therefore, this roadway has heavy traffic volume including all commercial vehicles and agricultural equipment. We, the undersigned, call on the Municipality to reinstate our crossing guard's position, for the safety of our roadway, our drivers and most importantly - our children.

    I grew up in Dresden with a crossing guard. I believe that having a crossing guard saves lives of children.

    My children are long grown up and do not require this service. I am signing this petition for their children, whenever they may come.
