Presidents tell House of Commons antisemitism is a “significant problem” on campus

During a recent House of Commons committee meeting, several university presidents admitted that antisemitism is a “significant problem” on their campuses and spoke to their efforts to combat it. The Vancouver Sun reports that the presidents of Concordia University, McGill University, the University of British Columbia and the University of Toronto spoke to the committee about the issue. Universities Canada President Gabriel Miller said that enforcing university speech codes against antisemitism has been difficult due to understandings about what constitutes hate speech. The committee members questioned the presidents over how they are responding to antisemitism and if their actions match their condemnation of antisemitism.
