MONTREAL, FEBRUARY 24, 2016 Denis Coderre, Mayor of Montreal, recently took the time to meet with Cycle 3 students as well as Spiritual and Community Animator Rocco Speranza as he lent his support to their Pink Shirt/Kindness Campaign.

Annually, the school, along with Vincent Massey Collegiate in Rosemount, seeks out celebrities to film positive messages for the campaign. In the past, students have received messages of support from the Right Honourable Justin Trudeau; CBCs Rick Mercer; Singers Shawn Desmond and Pierre Bouvier (Simple Plan); Olympians Rhian Wilkinson; Richard Pound, former Vice-President of the International Olympic Committee as well as a number of local media personalities such as Paul Karwatsky (CTV News), Frank Cavallaro (CBC Montreal), Shaun McMahon (92.5 The Beat) and Andrew Carter (CJAD 800),

In addition to filming Mayor Coderre for the school's public service announcement, students also received a tour of City Hall.
