McMaster demonstrators issued tickets for trespassing

May 14, 2019

Three McMaster University students were issued tickets for trespassing on campus last weekend, reports the Hamilton Spectator. During an open house for prospective students, the Hamilton Student Mobilization Network organized what it called a peaceful demonstration to protest the ongoing problem of sexual violence in the university. Gord Arbeau, McMaster's Director of Communications, told the Spectator that the protestors were handing out leaflets during the open house. After being asked to disband, a handful returned. "Three of them were handed trespassing notices," said Arbeau. The Spectator adds that the group also opposes the university’s decision to hire Glenn De Caire, the city's former police chief, as head of McMaster's campus security. Hamilton Spectator (ON)
