Toronto police remove encampment on YorkU campus

Toronto police have removed a pro-Palestinian encampment at York University at the institution’s request, according to City News and CTV News. YorkU stated that it had been clear that “encampments and physical occupations of community spaces are not permitted under its policies.” The protestors that set up the encampment received a trespass notice and reportedly left peacefully. One individual returned and was arrested under the Trespass Act. A group of faculty members from YorkU issued a statement expressing their solidarity with the student protestors and demanding an explanation from the administration.
