Members of Bishop’s University’s Students’ Representative Council (SRC) held a brief demonstration at the crosswalk on the corner of College and Little Forks Streets on Monday morning to highlight their ongoing concern over the dangers of Lennoxville’s pedestrian crossings.

“We were expecting that people would honk, or express annoyance in some way, but that didn’t happen,” said SRC President Chelsea McClellan, explaining that the small group was only present and crossing back and forth between 8am and 8:20. “We didn’t want to cause a huge amount of disruption,” the president added, noting that the point of the protest is to draw an attention to the issue rather than irritate local drivers.
