A year after her son’s death, Roxanne McCall opens up about the experience and the need for safe riding at night

Like many boys growing up in Squamish, Dean McCall was constantly on his bike. And, as it is for many teenagers, it was usually a struggle to get him to wear a helmet.

It’s been just over a year since Roxanne McCall last saw her son alive. A taxi struck the Grade 10 student at Howe Sound Secondary when he was on his way home from a friend’s house in Valleycliffe on April 21st, 2012, his mother said.
