Odd Squad visits Vernon

A dramatic look at drugs and the impact on communities is coming to Vernon.

Vancouver’s Odd Squad Production Company will discuss youth and drugs at Vernon Secondary School Friday at 7 p.m.

“Their presentation is very captivating and informative and will focus on current drug trends and drug awareness,” said Cst. Kathy Szoboticsanec, the RCMP’s school liaison.

Odd Squad is the creator of Through a Blue Lens, which highlighted  individuals living in Vancouver’s downtown east side, and Gangs and Guns, which digs deep into the culture of gangs.

“The presentation is open to everyone and we encourage students and parents to attend,” said Szoboticsanec.

Szoboticsanec and Doug Rogers, the Vernon School District drug and alcohol counsellor, will be present during the session to answer any questions.
