McGill student society ordered to not ratify pro-Palestinian policy 


The Students’ Society of McGill University (SSMU) recently voted in favour of a pro-Palestinian policy, which criticizes public comments from McGill University officials, prioritizes solidarity with Palestinian students, and places a variety of demands on the university. McGill warned the SSMU that the policy would breach the union’s own constitution and violate SSMU’s agreement with McGill, which could lead the university to end its agreement with the student union. B’nai Brith Canada recently filed an injunction seeking a halt to the vote on the adoption of the policy and the Montréal Gazette reports that a Québec Superior Court judge ordered SSMU not to ratify the policy until after a legal challenge on it can be heard next year.
