QC Superior Court issues partial injunction order for UQAM, U of T applies for injunction

The Quebec Superior Court has issued a partial injunction order for Université du Québec à Montréal against the pro-Palestinian protesters who set up an encampment on the university’s campus. The injunction orders protestors to take actions such as ensuring that the encampment does not obstruct building doors, windows, or walls. QC Superior Court Justice Louis J Gouin wrote that safety measures needed to be put in place to “prevent an unfortunate event from happening” and further asserted that implementing these measures will not infringe on the right to protest. The University of Toronto has reportedly filed an injunction asking the courts to remove the encampment on its campus.
