What can be said of poor XVIII year old Ottawa Mother Teresa Catholic High School Student Eric Leighton? This fine young man was just learning how II build things (barbecues in this instance) with his hands in his shop & enjoying his life & the learning process. An oil drum that once carried harmful chemicals gave off vapours and then exploded, killing Eric & injuring his classmates & his intructor. Frankly this boy should not be dead & furthermore, that drum should have been disposed of safely at a chemical plant & should never been brought around humans in the first place. The Ottawa-Carleton Catholic School Board has one hell of a lot of explaining II do!
Condolences II His Family,
