U of T granted injunction against pro-Palestinian encampment on campus

Ontario Superior Court Justice Markus Koehnen has granted the University of Toronto an injunction, ordering the pro-Palestinian encampment set up on campus at the University of Toronto to be taken down by Wednesday evening. Koehnen said that though no evidence has shown that encampment participants have been violent or antisemitic, the encampment has made it so that U of T cannot control King’s College Circle, amounting to irreparable harm. “In our society, we have decided that the owner of property generally gets to decide what happens on the property,” Koehnen said. Koehnen added that the harm to the university if the encampment remained would be greater than the harm to the protesters if it were taken down, as protesters can still demonstrate on campus.
