Wolfville considers installing cameras to stop property damage, mischief around Acadia

The town of Wolfville is considering putting up cameras on streets around Acadia University in an effort to stop property damage and mischief. The two-year pilot project would see the installation of 11 cameras on streets where there have previously been problems. Students have expressed concerns about privacy and the lack of consultation with the student body. Acadia Students’ Union president Georgia Saleski said that the university, the town, and students all play parts in responsible socialization, and that people are too focused on catching and stopping students who are acting inappropriately. “We should alternatively flip the script in my opinion and look for, ‘How can we better support students? Where can we give them a safe drinking place?’” said Seleski. CBC Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
