Ottawa 67’s Participate in W.I.T.S. Launch

The “WITS” program was invented in 1993 by Judy Stevens  in Vancouver, but today it is used in over 150 schools around North America. The acronym “WITS” stands for Walk away, Ignore, Talk about it and Seek help. The kick off in Ottawa happened at  Robert E. Wilson Public Elementary School, the activity was prepared and presented by Constable Amanda Payer and included some members of the Ottawa Police and Ottawa Fire departments and 3 players from the Ottawa 67’s Hockey Club, Richard Mraz, Keegan Wilson and Mike Cajkovsky. The three players got the chance to learn a secret hand shake, spend time with the kids and pass out special badges and autographed books and pamphlets. The anti-bullying event is about standing up and talking about it, Constable Payer read an anti-bullying story called The walrus’s gift, written by H.E. Stewart. Constable Amanda Payer also talked about how our community can come together and prevent bullying in Ottawa.
