Letter to the Editors

Advocating for cleaner yards

Dear Editors,

Queen’s students are proud to belong to their university. It is indeed a wonderful institution with great professors, great friendships and great times. I am a Kingston citizen who walks through the campus to work at Queen’s and I would like to ask students to ensure they have a great reputation with the public.

Certain front yards in the Ghetto are disgusting. How about everyone ensuring that before they leave Kingston, they clean up the garbage in front of and behind their house? I realize that sometimes it is a case of missing garbage pickup — how about ensuring that garbage is put out on the day of pickup, and put in the right containers? Then when myself and other people are walking through the Ghetto this summer, we can say, “Queen’s students really have something to be proud of!”

Joy Obadia,
Queen’s Writing Centre tutor
