The “Journal vs ...” is a new section within Dialogue. Two writers — one a member of the Journal Editoral Board and the other a member of the wider Queen’s community — face off on a selected topic. The views expressed by the Editorial Board member don’t represent the collective views of the Journal, but only those of that particular individual.
The conflict that took place between CrossFit Tricolour and Queen’s administration this past year has left me feeling like the University cares more about protecting the status quo than pursuing student-driven innovation and change.
The current administration is not only losing trust in student leadership, but is actively working to curtail this proud tradition.
