3rd Ryerson journalism student Laura Woodward got a great scoop (and wipe) for the campus paper Eyeopenerafter the 20-year-old learned that while bathrooms on campus are stocked with only one-ply toilet paper, but bathrooms used by staff and administration executives are graced with the presence of TWO-PLY paper!
Since the news broke HERE via the Toronto Star, Ryerson spokesperson Michael Forbes said in an email that the university is looking in the issue, and they they’re contemplating providing two-ply to all facilities on campus.
This two-tier approach has been in play for the last 10 years.
When Woodward learned of the discrepancy, she not only checked as many bathrooms as possible on campus, she also called every toilet paper distributor in the city to eventually find the one that supplies Ryerson! That company confirmed that they do in fact provide the post-secondary institution with the coveted two-ply.
Ryerson states that providing everybody on campus with two-ply would cost $80,000 a year. Not only that, bathroom dispensers would need to be retrofitted to be able to hold two-ply rolls, and even plumbing would have to be upgraded in order to handle the thicker tissue.
Should Ryerson provide two-ply for everybody, or is one-ply good enough for your butt? Do you use luxurious two-ply in your home?
