Protestors call on Memorial to reinstitute Ode to Newfoundland in convocation ceremonies


A group of protestors recently called upon Memorial University to reinstitute the Ode to Newfoundland in its convocation ceremonies. Memorial dropped the Ode from its ceremonies last year and reaffirmed the decision this past spring. Former students and members of the community protested the decision by singing the anthem at Memorial’s Arts and Culture Centre during the spring convocation ceremonies this week. Saltwire and NTV report that the rally did not disrupt the convocation ceremonies, but instead was meant as a symbolic gesture.
