Dal concerned after thousands attend large street parties

September 28, 2021
Dalhousie University has issued a message to its community condemning a street party that drew thousands of individuals to Jennings Street. CBC says that police broke up an afternoon party that was spilling into the street from student properties, and that a “flash mob party” happened later that evening. Ten people were arrested for public intoxication and numerous open liquor tickets were issued. Dal has requested that students who attended the parties get tested for COVID-19 and refrain from coming to campus for a week. Dal said that it will be sanctioning students for violations under the Code of Student Conduct, and has reaffirmed its commitment to being a good neighbour. Dal | CBC | News 1130 (NS)
