Thousands of Grade 9 students in Canada took part in Take Our Kids to Work Day on Nov. 7, but it's likely that Isaac Lockert had the most memorable of all of them.

The 14-year-old's day didn't include a trip to an office building or a factory. Isaac instead started out at Rideau Hall, swung by the Ottawa police headquarters to meet the police chief and wrapped things up with an introduction to Parliamentarians.

From the chief's office, Isaac and his father Jeff were whisked off to meet members of the Ottawa police tactical team, where Isaac was loaded up with bulletproof gear and a helmet. Isaac is a member of the 632 Phoenix air cadets squadron in Orleans, but his time spent firing a .22-calibre air rifle didn't prepare him for hoisting a heavy rifle - unloaded - that the officers use on their calls.
