Just so you know what kind of work went into preparing for this Inquest, here are just a few of the policies we had to research and try to understand for this Inquest.
(All you ever wanted to know about Government Policies but were afraid to ask is available on the Government of New Brunswick website at http://www.gnb.ca/0000/policies.asp)
Guideline 512, Student Activity Vehicles
This Guideline was in effect at the time of the crash but now it's called Policy 512 but it's essentially a copy paste job from the old Guideline. Fortunately, we were wise enough to print out a hard copy of the Guideline before the Department took it off line so we have it in PDF format if anyone wants it, all you have to do is Contact Us.
Guideline 513, Transportation to and From Off-Site School-Related Activities
This was also in effect at the time of the crash but now it's called Policy 513. Same thing, they took this Guideline off the government website but we have a copy in PDF format if anyone wants it, just Contact Us.
