City closes pathway connected to school where 11-year-old boy was struck, killed by vehicle
Last week, our community experienced a tragedy with the loss of little Duncan Xu.
I join you in expressing our condolences and prayers to his family and to the Kennedy Public School Community. Losing a child is not an easy thing for the family to go through.
In response to the death of Duncan, we are taking more measures to make sure that our school community is safe. I ask that you please drive safely and obey the traffic laws. Traffic laws were developed to ensure the safety of drivers, passengers and pedestrians. There is no excuse to disobey them. If everyone follows the laws, it will go a long way to ensure that our children can go to and from school safely.
