So Maple Batalia, a Sikh immigrant & young Canadian actress who starred in"Diary of a Wimpy Kid" was found dead Wednesday near an entrance of the Surrey, British Columbia campus of Simon Fraser University. I saw this film & the young lady was quite the delight. But here she is, only XIX (19) & struck down in her prime by gunshot wounds. I just cannot imagine how horrified her parents must feel, as well as her siblings. Here their daughter was just trying to get an education & she cannot even be safe on a post-secondary campus. Totally appalling, security needs II be beefed up at schools, from playschools all the way to post-secondary institutions.
