On learning of the “deplorable incident” involving Ayman Elkasrawy, a teaching assistant in Ryerson’s science and engineering department, the university’s president “immediately” referred the matter to the university’s human rights services department, its human resources department and legal counsel asking for “appropriate follow-up actions and possible resolutions,” Ryerson said in a statement to Ryerson said it is “very aware of how something of this nature can impact the climate for our Jewish students and our Jewish community.That is why we are committed to broadening education and awareness of anti-Semitism and we remain actively engaged in addressing any anti-Semitism in our community.” The latest controversy at Ryerson concerns a supplication that Elkasrawy, an imam, delivered last Ramadan at the Masjid Toronto mosque on Dundas St. According to one translation, the prayer stated: “O Allah! “Neither I, Masjid Toronto or the congregation harbour any form of hate towards Jews.Hundreds of Canadian university students have joined an American online service that connects young students with wealthy older patrons, promising a “sugar daddy” for every “sugar baby.” Toronto’s Ryerson University is the top Canadian school on Seeking Arrangements.com, where the tagline reads “mutually beneficial relationships and mutually beneficial arrangements.” The site promises frank, no-strings-attached relationships, where young students – mostly women – write what they want and older patrons – mostly men – post what they’re willing to give.

On November 18, 2015 Ryerson University student and political activist Steve Katsikaris tries to get help by booking an appointment with Ryerson University Medical Centre campus doctor Dr.
Brooke Alexandra Hogarth so that he can obtain a referral from her to see a Psychiatrist. Hogarth calls the Toronto Police on Ryerson University campus in order to apprehend Steve against his will so that he will be abducted to a mental hospital as a detained patient under psych evaluation. Hogarth insists that she has the power to fill out a psychiatric evaluation form against him under the Ontario Mental Health Act.
In my opinion, this incident is scary because it appears that any patient with bad nightmares or the wrong type of thoughts can end up getting abducted by law enforcement to be committed to a mental hospital.
