Just days after the news broke regarding the new location for the Bermuda
Shorts day a group of cranky children from the University Child Care Center petitioned the University to re-evaluate the proposed "grass by the C-Train option".
This location was said to be too disruptive for the young children of faculty, students, and staff of the University. However many people are questioning the source of these allegations. "I call bullshit" says 4 year old pre-schooler Josh Gobbin. "I like to watch mommy get drunk and do her Spongebob impersonations, they are really really funny".
"The University isn't taking into account the best interest of the children" said Heather Gobbin 19, mother of young Josh. Heather says she pays $945.00 a month to ensure that her child's interest is top priority and by not letting her little boy hear her say, "Aww tartar sauce" in a slurred pitch perfect voice of Spongebob "they" are violating her sacred rights as a parent. The University disagrees insisting that the loud music and more importantly open liquor could have an adverse affect on the younglings. "Kids are going to drink" said Heather, "at least I know they're safe if they're in a field by the C-Train".
The debate is sure to linger on as both sides are in a current deadlock, but young mother Heather is confident that the University will see things her way, "I used to party hard with my parents, and look how I turned out. I'm a first year Engineering student at the University of Calgary".
BSD is usually held outside of the MacEwan Student center but due to construction the event had to be moved.
