Once again the unofficial Homecoming 2010 saw hundreds of persons, many of whom were Queen's students, congregating noisily on and near Aberdeen Street. Many were intoxicated or publicly consuming alcohol, in flagrant violation of the liquor laws. Hundreds of police, at a cost to taxpayers of over $300,000.00 were required to deal with the situation.
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.
