An 88-year-old shooting range at University of Toronto’s Hart House has been ordered closed by the university administration. A spokesperson acknowledged that there were no safety or legal concerns, but said that the 450-member House Rifle and Revolver Club was inconsistent with university values. University officials are now looking closely at other campus activities which could be imparting inappropriate values to students, such as philosophy classes and touch football games.
