Ottawa, Waterloo implement measures to crack down on student partying

Two cities have recently implemented new measures to address student problem behaviour related to partying, reports CBC. In Ottawa, city leadership has let students know that if problem behaviour occurs during the Panda Game, an annual football game between the University of Ottawa Gee-Gees and Carleton University Ravens, the game will be cancelled next year. “It’s a reality that the policing cost and the reputational cost for both the city and the universities … are putting this tradition in jeopardy,” said Rideau-Vanier Councillor Mathieu Fleury. The City of Waterloo is preparing for an in-person homecoming celebration at Wilfrid Laurier University. The city council reinstated a special nuisance noise bylaw this weekend and Waterloo Regional Police Service is asking students to act responsibly. The university said that it will have an increased police and special constable presence on campus and in nearby neighbourhoods this weekend.
