GBC student suspended after campus fight

Security patrols increased on Casa Loma campus following altercation involving gambling

Two students were involved in fight on Tuesday April 10, over a game they were playing in the Student Centre at Casa Loma campus.

According Stacey Andrews, the manager of public safety and security at George Brown College (GBC), the students involved in the altercation were gambling.

“One student lost, and did not want to pay the money owed, which resulted in the altercation,” she wrote in a email to The Dialog.

Andrews further noted that the fist fight was taken outside of the building, which was when security got involved.

The two students were brought before the college’s administration and the identified initiator has been suspended, pending investigation.

Further probes into the incident are currently underway.

Meanwhile, security patrols have since been heightened on campus.

Andrews said that the college is dedicated to ensuring a safe environment at GBC and encouraged students to reach out to security if anything comes up.

“The student body can always help security by letting us know of any issues they see, or are concerned about. The more eyes out there is always a good thing,” said Andrews.

In a case of an emergency, students can contact security at 416-415-4000 or by dialing “0” from a GBC internal Cisco phone. Tips are also welcomed at, and through an online confidential tip sheet, which can be accessed at GBC’s public safety page.
