The McGill Tribune reports that several buildings at McGill University were vandalized last week. Messages were written in black and red spray paint on the McCall MacBain Arts building, the University Centre, the Students’ Society of McGill University, and the Leacock building. The writing included criticisms of James McGill for owning slaves, called for the university to “decolonize” and “divest,” and urged the institution to “democratize SSMU” on the University Centre. The graffiti was cleaned off shortly after. “While we recognize the right of every individual to express their views and opinions, we regret that in this case, the manner of expression damaged University property,” said McGill media relations officer Frédérique Mazerolle.
