Langara instructor on leave, under investigation for Hamas attack comments


An instructor from Langara College is on leave after reportedly describing Hamas’s attack on Israel as “amazing” and “brilliant.” The instructor reportedly made the remarks while speaking at a rally in Vancouver. CTV News reports that the Jewish Federation of Greater Vancouver CEO Ezra Shanken called for Langara College and Simon Fraser University, from which the instructor graduated, to cut ties with her over the comments. In response, SFU issued a statement indicating that “beyond being a graduate, this person has no affiliation with the university,” while a statement from Langara explained that “while the matter is under investigation, the employee is currently on leave.”
