Queen’s releases statement after break and enter, Palestinian flag raised at clocktower

Queen’s University has issued a statement after an incident in which a Palestinian flag was hung on the university’s Grant Hall clocktower flagpole. The incident was the result of a break and enter; Campus Security and Emergency Services attended the scene and removed the flag. Queen’s says that Campus Security and Kingston Police are working together to investigate the incident. CTV News reports that the statement originally urged campus community members to contact authorities if they experience or witness a “hate-motivated” act, but that this wording was revised to say an “unlawful” act and the statement was reissued.
