Why this petition matters

Started by rui zhao

As students of Wilfrid-Laurier University, we are considering whether the university can do the online courses in winter term because of the Omicron which is highly infectious virus and also the difficulty of renting an apartment.


This virus came from South Africa and it spreads quicker than Covid-19. The coming of Omicron is very terrible and someone who has taken 2 Pfizer also get the Omicron. I hope we can prepare in advance but not after a lot of people have already got this virus.  I think staying at home will be the best choice to cut off the spread of the epidemic.  I hope school can do online course in winter! Here is a picture shows how the new virus influences compared to other viruses, we need to stop the spread of the virus as possible as we can!

Renting an apartment is another issue to have in-person courses. A lot of students are planning to go back to the university. However, the supply of houses is much less than the demand. In this situation, renters raise price of apartments and some students still can not get the place to live.

This isn't a petition to disrupt the operations of the university, it's a petition to ensure that students and staff at Laurier are safe and can continue to learn in an environment that is controlled.
