It is so sad that our kids really struggle to get the education that they need, and it is really sad that women are the pry today in our society.And what is really disgust me is that our government and state official wants to just sweep it under the rug.Its time that our state needs to understand that it is time to wake up and do something about.
It's time that the people wake up and understand that the police only show up after a crime has been committed to take a report or bring the body bags. Sometimes they can catch the perpetrator. But they don't 'protect' you. You have to learn to protect your self just as you have to prepare for disasters. You people need to grow up and learn to take of yourselves. Loose the idea that Big Daddy government will take care of you. It just isn't so.
What you say would only apply if taxes were extremely low. That is not the case in Canada. The level of social services you receive is a function of how much taxes you pay, and in Canada, tax is a significant portion of your income forgone. A police 1st year cadet in training makes 45K a year, I graduate with a business degree in June and my expected income is 30K, if they make more than me, I expect a return on my investment. We have well compensated officers but not enough of them. When...

We have well compensated officers but not enough of them. When you look at how much taxes Canadians pay from the average 24% income tax in addition the regressive 13% consumption tax where 2/3rds of Canadians live paycheck to paycheck, meaning 2/3rds of Canadians give roughly 34% or more of their income to the government, you realize that asking for a safe campus is not an unreasonable demand.
Dale Nakedtoad: Peace and Order - that is what they are there for! What do you expect?
Ok, peps, just think about your own kids would you want them to be safe, I know you would these kids need your help by signing the petition. This is a problem that is happening throughout the world on campuses but we need to start taking back our safety from these criminals at large, that the system just slaps their hands and they are out to do this again.
Hi Gene, thanks for your support! The problem is York University is located in a neighborhood notorious for it's gang violence and that the majority of the time, the criminals are never caught or identified. Meanwhile, the libraries and other campus buildings are open to the public, thieves roam the libraries in search of unattended property and more hardened criminals have unrestricted access to the campus while security is spread very thin and in my opinion, why should armed criminals be intimidated by private security?
Kevin Cheung: the price of civilization, huh?
that hipocrite Bloombritches is he the mayor for you guys also ?I don't know what part of NY you are in but you definatly need security and if you don't get apply for a gun .You guys need to be safe.So much violence it scares me I have a grandson in college in Indiana University 2nd year .I worry all the time about him. I will pray for help for all of you guys'.Life use to be so simple but those days are long gone. When mental ill people go on a shooting rampage I cannot blame the gun I blame the source that gave a lunitic a gun' Take care
Allowing students and employees with concealed carry permits to carry would do a lot to convince criminals to go elsewhere. When you advertise you have disarmed law abiding citizens you've created an "unarmed victim zone. Criminals are predatory animals, they will not attack if they believe their intended victim may be able to cause the perpetrator harm. They will look elsewhere.
All weapons are illegal in Canada. That includes blades, tazers and guns. In fact, in Canada, if someone tries to rob you and you overpower and detain them or injure them, you can get arrested and charged with assault.
An option to consider: http://concealedcampus.org/2012/04/students-take-aim-at-college-gun-bans/.
No, not an option for so many reasons. Most importantly, because York U is in Canada where it is virtually impossible to have a handgun.
YOU HAVE MY VOTE. GOD BLESS THE COURSE!
I would volinteer to stand guard at the entrance of Schools and check every one who wants to enter after School had started. All volinteers would have to be subjected to a strong security check and have a Csrry Permit.
No more windows on ground floors of schools where the students are located. Also any buildings that have access to students should not be conected to Schools.
SIGNE **PARTAGE **.
Longtime OVERDUE!!! May God be with US ALL!! U N I T Y... STOP THE VIOLENCE! Consequences come w/EVERYTHING...
