In our view, there is no excuse for the lawbreaking which took place on Aberdeen Street and elsewhere last fall.
Unfortunately, some people, both Queen's students and non-students, violated Ontario liquor laws last fall. Although we have identified some of these law violators as being from as far away as Waterloo Ont., Lennoxville Que., and Dartmouth N.S., we have also concluded that many of those convicted are Queen's students. To our shock and disappointment, some even are graduate students, Queen's Golden Gaels football players, class presidents, and Queen's scholarship winners!
We recognize that the lawbreaking Queen's students represent only a small proportion of the entire student body. Unfortunately, a few lawbreakers may give the entire student population a bad name and also damage the unversity's reputation. And harm town-gown relations.
The lists on the following pages contain names and date-of-birth of persons found guilty of liquor law violations during the unofficial Homecoming weekend and the Orientation period in September 2009. This information is public information, taken from the Ontario Court of Justice dockets.
The date-of-birth and middle initials (where provided on the court docket) can assist in uniquely identifying the persons convicted. Some names on these lists are obviously not Queen's students.
