Street Parties – City/Queen’s


The City of Kingston and Queen’s University have announced a move they hope will cut down on dangerous behaviour at street parties.

People charged with alcohol, noise or other nuisance offences during homecoming, move-in week and St. Patrick’s Day will have to appear in court instead of being able to simply pay the fine.

Mayor Brian Paterson says by having to appear in court people can better understand the negative effect their actions have on the community.  Queen’s says students who are charged could also face non-academic discipline from the university.
