NEW WESTMINSTER (NEWS 1130) – The New Westminster school district says there is no room for threats and violence, after a threat was made against its board chair this week.

In a statement, it says it welcomes healthy debate and discussion on issues that affect students, schools, and the community.

“But there is zero tolerance or space for reactions that become abusive or threatening,” it said.
