UoGuelph encampment set up in evacuation pathway, Guelph Fire Services calls for obstructions to be moved

The University of Guelph has issued an update on an encampment set up on its campus that was blocking the evacuation pathway from Zavitz Hall. UoGuelph President Dr Charlotte Yates wrote that Guelph Fire Services issued orders for a walkway beside Zavitz Hall to be cleared of tents and personal belongings, as they were creating an unsafe situation in case of a fire. CTV News reports that the university originally stated that it was being fined $20K a day for non-compliance, but an update from UoGuelph clarified that Guelph Fire Services had extended the deadline for compliance and that the university has not been fined.
