Dalhousie University president Richard Florizone has announced the steps he will take in response to sexually explicit Facebook posts attributed to some male students in the faculty of dentistry.
Florizone issued a statement Wednesday evening saying the comments have caused harm broadly to not only the university, but the dental industry as a whole.
The statement says a number of the women in the case have elected to proceed with a restorative justice process under the policy's informal resolution procedure, and this process is already underway.
It's not clear what this 'restorative justice' process involves, but I'm sure it will become clear in the coming days. A powerful story of restorative justice can be found here.

have elected to proceed with a restorative justice process.
He continues by saying the restorative justice process is being done in good faith and if those involved don't show enough commitment to the process, a formal complaint will be lodged under the university's sexual harassment police.
He also committed to forming a presidential task force "in the coming weeks."
