BC schools reject off-campus behaviour codes

October 24, 2007

While many Ontario and Quebec universities are adding off-campus behaviour clauses to their student codes of conduct, BC institutions say they are not tempted to do the same.  One BC student calls the practice "close to infringing on students' Charter rights."  The only BC school with an off-campus code is "the overtly Christian" Trinity Western University.  Brock University, Fanshawe College, Queen's University and Bishop's University in Ontario and Quebec are considering off-campus codes, due to  community tensions.
