Musical Concert Against Commercial Development at UBC Ends in Mass Arrests; Students Demand Public Inquiry

UBC students are calling for a public inquiry into the behaviour of the RCMP and UBC Campus Security as police made mass arrests at a musical concert against commercial development at UBC. The event, KnollAid 2.0, was meant to be an awareness-raising musical concert against the planned construction of a poorly planned underground bus loop and the commercialization of the centre of campus. Students have been outraged at the lack of meaningful consultation and undemocratic actions of the administration in developing this space. The focus of the musical concert was the grassy knoll, a centre of social life at UBC that is slated for destruction by the UBC administration.
