Gerald McShane Elementary School in Montreal North had a big event on May 14 to introduce the new mascot for the Montreal Police Department. More than 700 children entered a contest to name the mascot and McShane student Nina McGregor won. At the event there was a party for the mascot in the gym with all of the students and a dozen or so other mascots plus a huge cake.  At this time Nina received a bicycle and recognition from the Police Commander for coming up with the name "Flik.” A week earlier Nina, her classmates and Principal Evelyn Alfonsi were invited to the National Police Academy in Nicolet to spend the day.
