Students at Memorial University of Newfoundland have taken to washroom stalls to express criticism of president Vianne Timmons after she censured posters calling for her resignation on public bulletin boards.

The drawing in one washroom stall includes the statement, “Me, seeing the MUN President getting pay raises meanwhile I don’t know if I can even come back next semester…”

Furthermore, it then states, “Dear janitor/maintenance, sorry about the graffiti… I just need someone to witness my struggle. Bless you. I’m sorry…”

A student called J.D. wrote, “Whoever wrote this, I witness your struggle. I pray you find a solution.”

Another student wrote, “I witness your struggle.”

It is then written by another person “Vianne is a coward.”

Matt Barter is a fourth-year student in the Humanities and Social Sciences Faculty at Memorial University of Newfoundland, majoring in Political Science with a minor in Sociology. He enjoys reading thought-provoking articles, walks in nature, and volunteering in the community.
