This article has MAJOR POV issues. --99.250.177.248 (talk) 20:32, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

The number 26,081 is hardly accurate if you state that BCOU's population is "over 16,000," so the number is obviously wrong. Darkcore 01:58, 10 Apr 2005 (UTC)

But we shouldn't be lisitng the population separately. --Spinboy 02:00, 10 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Fine. I changed it to "over 26,000". Darkcore 02:06, 10 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Sounds great, thanks for your hard work on this article, I found it a challenge to do all by myself. --Spinboy 02:26, 10 Apr 2005 (UTC)
No problem, glad to help. Darkcore 02:54, 10 Apr 2005 (UTC)

There are still substantial POV issues. This article reads more like an ad than an encyclopedia article. Statements such as, "TRU's comprehensive commitment to education means that students receive a healthy balance of textbook education and hands-on experience through class and group projects" and, "Accolades is TRU's very-own restaurant and is staffed by students in the Tourism and Culinary Arts programs. The little restaurant with an up-town menu[...]" have no place here. However, there's a great deal in the article which is well written and worth keeping, it just needs a good cleaning out. --Yamla (talk) 01:59, 21 January 2009 (UTC)
