Queen's donates $175,000 to Kingston in thanks

December 13, 2007

Queen's University has contributed $175,000 to the City of Kingston, not to reimburse the costs of policing the annual unofficial street party on Aberdeen Street, but rather in recognition of joint efforts to "address" the issue.  Queen's says it works very closely with many different departments at the city, and made this financial contribution to "support this partnership."  Last year Queen's contributed a gift of $100,000.
