Hanover School Division is looking for someone to pick up the tab for almost $24,000 in damages sustained in an act of vandalism at Niverville Collegiate in June 2015.

Ken Alarie and a male youth both pleaded guilty and were sentenced for the incident in separate court hearings over a year ago.

The suit filed recently by the division seeks to recoup $23,859,39 in damages caused by the pair on June 13, 2015.

Alarie is named as a defendant. The youth, who is now an adult, and his mother are also named as defendants.

The mother, who was not part of criminal proceedings, is argued in the division’s statement of claim to have failed to reasonably supervise her child and, citing the Public Schools Act, is argued by the division to be responsible for the damage caused by her child to school property.

Hanover School Division refused to comment on the case, noting the matter remains before the courts.
