A part of the UTM community

Dear Editor,

Re: “A house divided cannot stand”.

I am the medical student that was mentioned in the November 14 letter to the editor. First and foremost, I just wanted to apologize to the students who I met last week in the Health Sciences Complex. It was never my intention to make them feel excluded, and I am very sorry if they felt that way. I was misinformed about the space usage situation that day, which has now been cleared up by the administration at the Mississauga Academy of Medicine. I entirely understand your intentions to explore the new building.

Furthermore, I speak for the Academy in saying please feel free to come and speak with us regarding the new building, if you have any questions about medicine, or if you simply find the weather incredibly interesting and are looking to discuss precipitation patterns. We’d love to chat! We’ve begun to make contact with the UTM Pre-Med club, among other clubs, to see where we could be of use in terms of outreach. So keep an eye out for us on campus. We’ll be the students with the blue backpacks who look like they have not had sufficient sleep in weeks.

Again, please accept our utmost and sincere thanks for welcoming us to be a part of your long-standing community.

Tara He
