Disturbing University Frosh Week story
The president of the Saint Mary's Students' Association is apologizing for a frosh-week chant captured on video and put online that condones non-consensual sex with underage girls.
Jared Perry says he is deeply sorry that the song was performed by male and female orientation leaders earlier this week on the campus in Halifax.
He says the association will launch an investigation and try to determine how the school can prevent sexual assault on campus.
Perry says the same chant has been part of frosh events since at least 2009 when he sang it as his initiation, with the lyrics being passed down on paper to orientation leaders.
He couldn't explain why no one had raised concerns about it previously.
Nova Scotia premier Premier Darrell says he was disturbed after hearing the chant.
University president Colin Dodds says he was shocked by the video and issued an apology on behalf of the school.
The provincial government has tried to raise awareness about consensual sex and bullying following the attempted suicide and death of Rehtaeh Parsons earlier this year.
