OPINIONS

Last word on heated debate

Headline was degrading in nature

Honey bronzed reputation

Get off the path, get on the bus

Red and embarassed by expenses

Course has its head in the stars

Homecoming homophobia

Get off the path, get on the bus



To the Editor:

I am writing in regards to closing of the path that connects campus to Wharncliffe Road.

A week and a half ago two signs were posted at either end of the path notifying users that it would be closed effective Sept. 27, due to the construction involved with building the new stadium.

As a user of this path, I am disappointed that this has occurred because I enjoy using the path. Also, without the path, my walk to campus is a lot longer.

I completely understand why the path must be closed, but I have a few concerns.

Firstly, the Wharncliffe bus is already jam-packed every morning – to the point where there is not enough room for everyone to get on. What is going to happen with the extra people that would normally be using the path, but are now using the bus (especially since winter is around the corner)? Will there be extra buses?

Secondly, I hope that the path will return once the stadium is built. It was very scenic and a wide range of individuals enjoyed it for many activities such as jogging, walking, biking and rollerblading.

If possible, it would be great to find out some information on this and let users know what they can expect in the future.
