Protesters call it quits

Students protesting a Queen's University deregulation proposal to the Ontario government seem to have thrown in the towel.

Scott Courtice, president of the Queen's Alma Mater Society, said the student-led Coalition Against Deregulation were blocked out of the school's administrative offices by "extra security" Tuesday, putting an end to what would be their third protest in the last two weeks.

The protesters occupied the Principal's office in Richardson Hall for all of last week, but took the weekend off. They reoccupied on Monday, but left on their own will in the evening, Courtice said.

Indecent Excretion

The London Police Department issued a warning Tuesday evening for women in the city to make sure doors and windows are locked after a suspicious male was seen prowling around five apartment buildings in the northwest area of Wonderland Road and Oxford Street.

LPD Const. Ryan Holland confirmed the male had ejaculated outside the ground floor apartment of a female occupant. He noted this is the third report of a suspicious male around apartment buildings in the same area since September 2001.

Holland said there is no information linking the males in each of the three reports.

Incorrect information appeared in a letter to the editor in the Jan. 22 edition of The Gazette.

All responsible parties have been sent to a detention camp in Guatanamo Bay, Cuba where they will enjoy 10 fun-filled days and 11 sultry nights experiencing the wonders of sensory depravation. They will then be beaten until they confess to their crimes, at which time they will be sentenced to death and promptly shot.
