McMaster, Queen’s, U of T, YorkU among universities following UWaterloo, UoGuelph in pulling course information


McMaster University, Queen’s University, the University of Toronto, and York University have joined the University of Waterloo and University of Guelph in pulling course room locations from public-facing webpages. The CHCH reports that Carleton University, Trent University, Western University, and Wilfrid Laurier University are currently reviewing their safety practices, which could result in course information being removed from the public domain. “These classes [that explore social and gender issues] have become a lightning rod in terms of hate and online extremism,” commented Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations President Nigmendra Narain. “We all want to go in positively looking forward to the great experience for students and faculty, not having to worry about security measures when we go into the classroom.”
