Events after Panda Game leads to arrests, tickets, discussions about game’s future

Seven people were arrested and dozens were given tickets after the annual Panda Game between the University of Ottawa and Carleton University. Police will reportedly be providing the universities with a list of those arrested so that institutions can apply student conduct rules. Rideau-Vanier Councillor Mathieu Fleury called the efforts made to break up this large gathering “not sustainable.” “Police [are] doing their own debrief. The university is doing its own debrief. I’m doing my own debrief with the community. And we’ll come back to the table with recommendations,” said Fleury. City leadership previously warned students that problem behaviour after the Panda Game would lead to the game’s cancellation next year.
