Queen’s Jewish student centre raises warning about rising cases of antisemitism

The Jewish Student Centre at Queen’s University has raised a warning about rising antisemitism in Kingston. Swastika graffiti and messages of violence have reportedly been found on campus in recent weeks, including in the university’s new Albert St residence. “I think, as a Queen’s student living in Kingston, it’s absolutely horrifying,” said Queen’s student Georgia Gardiner. “ In the past, …all the antisemitic graffiti found on sidewalks back in 2019, that could have been someone off-campus … but in a residence, that means it’s another student.” University President Patrick Deane condemned the discriminatory messaging, stating “that there is no place at Queen’s for antisemitism or for hate or violence of any kind against any member of our community.” Global News| YGK News Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
