Ryerson University has most memberships
The founder of a dating website that connects men and women looking for “mutually beneficial relationships” says more and more Canadian university students are looking for what he calls “a sugar daddy.”
Brandon Wade of seekingarrangement.com defines a sugar daddy as a man who has the financial means to “spoil and pamper” a female.
His American-based website also represents several sugar mommies offering money or gifts “in return for friendship and companionship.”
When the service launched in 2006, roughly 30 per cent of his clients were university students clients looking for someone to pay their tuition and living costs.
Wade says that number is now at 50 per cent.
He says the University of Saskatchewan placed 11th on his list of top sugar baby universities in Canada with 63 new sign ups in 2012, while Ryerson University in Toronto was No. 1 with 183 memberships.
What students are talking about today (January 23)
1. Seventh-year Carleton University human rights student Arun Smith has apparently not been in school long enough to learn that other people have rights to opinions that differ from his. After the “free speech wall” on campus was torn down, he posted a message to his Facebook wall claiming responsibility. “If everyone speaks freely we end up simply reinforcing the hierarchies that are created in our society,” it read. The display had been erected by campus club Carleton Students for Liberty and students were encouraged to write anything they wanted on the paper. Someone wrote “abortion is murder” and “traditional marriage is awesome.” GBLTQ Centre volunteer Riley Evans took offense, telling The Charlatan student newspaper that the wall was attacking those who have had abortions and those in same-sex relationships. Campus coordinator for the CSFL Ian CoKehyeng explained the purpose of the wall: “We feel that university is supposed to be an area of discourse and free thought, but it’s actually the opposite. We have less free speech on campus.” Looks like he may be right.
