Ponoka Secondary Campus is on lockdown at this hour after a disturbing video was posted online threating to harm Indigenous students.
Chevi Rabbitt is a Human Rights Activist.
“How are Indigenous Youth Attending Ponoka Secondary High School suppose to feel safe when they have classmates driving through neighboring reserves talking about scalping them,” Rabbit said in an interview with River Radio. “I would encourage parents to have those kids expelled! Call right now and demand that action be taken! You have rights as a parent! Use them!”
The Alberta RCMP have not confirmed the lockdown, however, River Radio will provide more information when it becomes available.
Update: A parent of one of the students says the school in now on “Hold and secure” procedure.
