Providence, UWinnipeg, RRC Polytech, UAlberta, SFU push for security changes in response to incidents


Several universities and colleges have raised security in response to rising incidents and unsafe behaviour near campus. Providence College has hired additional security for its satellite campus in downtown Winnipeg after four international students were assaulted in a random attack. The University of Winnipeg and RRC Polytechnic have also increased the security presence on their campuses in response to the rise in incidents nearby, and students at the University of Alberta have called on the university and City of Edmonton for increased safety and security measures at and around the north campus. At Simon Fraser University, the SFU traffic teams and Burnaby RCMP handed over 500 tickets to drivers over a five-month period as they cracked down on unsafe driving in the university area. A statement from the RCMP suggests that the partnership will continue in the future.
