George Brown College will be open Tuesday, Jan. 29, after a 26.4cm of snow fell in Toronto on Monday, according to The Weather Network.
A storm total of ~31 cm at #Toronto Pearson, however, with the 26.4 cm that fell January 28th, that made it Pearsons 3rd snowiest January day on record!

“Students who feel they can’t safely arrive for classes must discuss the implications of a missed class with their instructors,” the statement read.
“We encourage you to set aside extra time for your commute to campus.”
Students reacted to the news on social media.
They want us to wake up at 4 am to hit the road with the best transportation system in the world called TTC in this weather condition. What a solid decision.

What a joke. I have class at 8am and won’t be travelling through 20cm of snow to get there, way to take students safety into consideration

Wow what a joke. Clearly you have no consideration for your student’s welfare. Snow squalls expected during the morning commute after 30cm of snow today, and you expect us to show up to class for 7:30am? I bet the person who made this call is working from home tomorrow #insulting

@GBCollege PLEASE close the college tomorrow. I am NOT playing with y’all and this weather.
