Thames Centre Council agrees with Councillor Kelly Elliott that Automatic Emergency Defibrillators should be installed in every school.  Elliott says the current Thames Valley policy states that if the Principal agrees that an AED should be in a particular school in can be placed there. Elliott says West Nissouri Public School has been approached twice and both times the Principal rejected the request.  Elliott and her Council counterparts think that AED’s in school should be local Board policy.  She says the boards had a chance to install them a couple of years ago when the province was giving them away free, but did not take Queen’s Park up on their offer.
