Re: “Watch this: Dalhousie students riot during homecoming

STUDENTS RIOT???? Were you even there?
Halifax is a unique city with a very diverse community of young families, elderly and students. When compared to other Canadian homecoming events this was on the incredibly tame side of parties. Often at universities such as Queens, Western and Wilfrid Laurier, a street within their student ghetto is often forced to close due to high pedestrian traffic. Ontario faces very similar open container, public intoxication and liquor laws, but often no one is arrested for having an open beer on the street or on the front lawn of students homes. Parties and University go together like PB&J, this is not an anomaly within the university world and should not be treated as such. A strong police presence is needed at events such as this, but cops in Halifax are becoming notorious for being restless and simply unreasonable when it comes to students drinking. Students are a major source of income for the city and students and police should be working together to ensure large homecoming events are a space for students to let loose, but in a safe and respectful manner.
