- Canadian police say fights have taken place in western Alberta

- Authorities say adults organized ‘fight club’-style brawls in school parking lot

Canadian authorities in western Alberta allege that adults are organizing ‘fight club’-style meet-ups between students in the parking lot of a local area school district.
Parents of children enrolled in Grande Prairie and District Catholic Schools received a letter on Friday from the local school board warning them of the fights.
Police asked the school board to notify parents after two fights were organized by two adults in the parking lot of a local school.
‘Two adults appear to be organizing the fights,’ according to the letter from the school board obtained by the Edmonton Sun.
‘The fight is pre-arranged, the location and time is selected and certain students are invited to the fight.

‘Cars form a circle and turn on their lights. The fight then occurs and is videotaped.
‘The two fights were intense and injuries were severe.
‘One student was recently hospitalized.’
Parents and students are urged to notify police immediately if they see or hear of a scheduled fight in advance.
School board officials are warning that any adults involved in organizing the fights face arrest while students could be suspended or expelled from school.
‘If we as administration determine the individual poses a risk to others at school, even though the actions occurred after school, the Education Act does grant us the authority to suspend or expel,’ the school district said.
‘If you have questions, please feel free to call the RCMP or your school. Most importantly, talk to your family.’
