YorkU employees suspended following charges of mischief in relation to vandalism


The Toronto Starreports that at least three York University employees were suspended after being charged by Toronto police with mischief in relation to defacing an Indigo bookstore. In total, police charged 11 individuals in relation to vandalism that allegedly targeted Indigo CEO Heather Reismen over her charity that provides scholarships to “lone soldiers” who served in the Israel Defence Forces. A statement from YorkU said that the university placed the three individuals on non-disciplinary leave out of concern for the safety of the community. The Star reports that one of the suspended individuals is part of a group of students, faculty, and staff calling for the reinstatement of the three YorkU employees who were recently suspended.
