posted on Sept. 18: MSU president proposes fundraising to replace smashed church windows


McMaster Students Union president Sam Minniti has proposed fundraising to help replace smashed windows at Binkley United Church.

Minniti stressed that it's not known whether the vandals who smashed the windows earlier this month attend McMaster.

“Regardless of who's done this, this happened to our community,” said Minniti. “Being members of the community, we want to step up and be part of the solution.”

Replacing the stain glass windows will cost about $5000. The church's insurance deductible is $500.

Const. Jack Vanderpol, the McMaster liaison officer, told the Hamilton Spectator that the vandalism is still being investigated. He said police haven't confirmed that University students are responsible.
