UWaterloo students to close pub, citing financial woes

January 3, 2019

The University of Waterloo’s Federation of Students has announced that the Bombshelter Pub, nicknamed the Bomber by students, will close because of financial losses. “We had to make a decision because being an executive and being part of the board, we had to look at what was the most fiscally responsible,” said the Federation’s VP of Operations and Finance Kurt MacMillan. The Waterloo Region Record reports that the pub is estimated to have lost more than $1M in five years. “Right now, there is nothing set in stone for it,” said MacMillan, who stated that UWaterloo undergraduates will be consulted on the future use of the pub space. The Record| CBC (ON)
