Waterloo – The university has issued the following statement regarding Laurier's continued work with community partners to address the street parties that occurred during Laurier’s Homecoming this past weekend:
Wilfrid Laurier University shares the concerns of Waterloo Regional Police Chief Bryan Larkin regarding student street parties.
We are committed to working with police, city and emergency partners, student leaders and other post-secondary institutions to shift the culture.
We are aware that such changes will take time and must be carefully managed to avoid unintended consequences.
