A Québec judge has ordered McGill University to comply with a deal it had previously reached with Kanien’kehá:ka Kahnistensera (the Mohawk Mothers) on the search for unmarked graves at the former Royal Victoria Hospital in Montréal. The Mohawk Mothers argued that McGill and Québec’s infrastructure agency did not properly involve a panel of archaeologists who had been appointed to oversee the search. In response, McGill argued that the panel’s mandate had already expired. Superior Court Justice Gregory Moore rejected McGill’s argument and ordered the university to abide by the panel’s recommendations to guide how they continue the search. Moore rejected the Mohawk Mothers’ request that the excavation work be suspended, asserting this would be unnecessary.
