SAFER INTERNET DAY

Tomorrow, for Safer Internet Day, the Canadian Centre for Child Protection (C3P) is launching modernized Zoe & Molly safety resources for online games. Zoe & Molly materials help teachers and parents have relevant, important conversations about staying safe online with their children and students in Grades 3 and 4.

The comics, which C3P are offering for free for a limited time, are accompanied by read-along versions, interactive online games, and a quiz. Together, the Zoe & Molly resources help teach children important skills like distinguishing safe and unsafe online boundaries, and telling an adult about inappropriate content, conduct, or contact online.

“The internet is an unregulated space that is constantly changing. It’s critical that we make resources available to parents and educators to help kids build skills to increase their safety,” said Noni Classen, C3P Director of Education. “The Zoe & Molly comics have been updated to address the new risks and offender tactics we’re seeing through Cybertip.ca reports.”

Visit ZoeAndMolly.ca for more information, read-along versions of the comics, or to play the online safety games and quizzes. To order free Zoe & Molly resources for a limited time, visit https://protectchildren.ca/en/order/products/free-resources/

WINTER PERIL

Running a generator during a snowstorm poses significant dangers, primarily due to the potential release of carbon monoxide (CO). Generators emit this colorless, odorless gas as a byproduct of combustion, and in an enclosed space, such as a garage or even a poorly ventilated outdoor area, it can accumulate to lethal levels. The danger increases during snowstorms when ventilation might be compromised and snow can block exhaust pipes, leading to the buildup of CO indoors. Carbon monoxide poisoning can result in symptoms like headaches, dizziness, nausea, and confusion, progressing to unconsciousness and death if exposure continues. It is crucial to operate generators outdoors in well-ventilated areas, away from windows and doors, and never inside homes, garages, or other enclosed spaces to prevent the life-threatening risks associated with carbon monoxide exposure.
