York still is not safe

The biggest thing people have always talked about is that campus is security. Is it safe to walk to my car? If I call the escort service will they come? Will they take 45 minutes to arrive?

There's not a lot of trust in security.

It pisses me off to know that York was advised to change things so that we can be safer, but they chose not to as Excalibur makes clear.

On May 30, 2001, the Ministry of Labour (MOL) released a report based on the security standards of York University, which was investigated thoroughly by inspector Mike Budlovsky, under the Industrial Health and Safety Program.

The MOL report indicated that many security officers work alone on campus and face the threat of dealing with serious situations. York was advised to consider the use of a series of equipment including handcuffs and defensive weapons.

They did a survey, which found out that 91 per cent of students surveyed (they surveyed 600, which is a lot) want security to actually do something.

Will this impact the admin?

No, they just want our money.

I know I'm a libertarian, but safety before liberty, people.

We're not safe right now.

And that's the truth about York.
