Unsanctioned street gatherings, parties near Dal result in arrests, tickets

A large unsanctioned street gathering near Dalhousie University on Saturday night resulted in arrests and tickets. A police news release estimated that over 4,000 people attended an unsanctioned event related to Dal’s homecoming celebration. Dozens of summary offence tickets were reportedly issued as revellers set off fireworks into the crowd and toward residences, and prevented emergency responders from accessing injured individuals or breaking up the parties. Dal President Deep Saini released an apology to the community that stated that Dal will be investigating and disciplining those who were involved in planning the parties.
