UWaterloo students petition for security upgrades following recent stabbing


University of Waterloo students are feeling shaken following the recent stabbing of two students and one teacher inside a philosophy of gender classroom. A group of students have subsequently launched an online petition asking for security upgrades to the UWaterloo campus, including a more robust emergency alert system. In response to the petition, UWaterloo told CBC that the institution is taking steps to improve their emergency response system and plans to hold community forums about how to make the “campus safe and more inclusive, promote well-being and move forward together.”
