OTTAWA – A decision by Carleton University to remove weight scales from the campus fitness centre is being met with mixed reaction.

According to the Ottawa Citizen, the decision was made in an effort to promote positive body image, with the school telling the paper, a measure of pounds alone “does not provide a good indication of health.”

While the move has been met with some positive reaction from students who had called the scales “triggering,” many have taken to social media to voice their displeasure.

Meantime, this Twitter user has an idea to meet in the middle.
