UManitoba nursing student suspended after series of social media posts


A nursing student has been suspended from the University of Manitoba after creating a series of social media posts that UManitoba administrators deemed antisemitic. Penticton Herald reports that the student was informed by UManitoba senior staff that they had received several complaints regarding her social media posts; administrators later told the student that she was suspended from in-person courses and clinical work. True North reports that two members of Manitoba’s legislative assembly wrote a letter to the Government of Manitoba asking that the student be allowed to continue her education and calling the suspension “unacceptable.” CBC reports that the MLAs later apologized to the Jewish community for any hurt caused by this request.
