Dear Comms Friends,

Our students just launched a petition across Ontario seeking fairness for faculty (one of their demands is that the La Cité profs be reinstated), and fair and transparent process for student refunds.

At this time, in my classes, I have heard of no student who has actually received a refund. Instead, I have heard multiple stories of intimidation, and outright bullying (international students being told that if they don’t continue in their courses they won’t be guaranteed visas to return etc.)

I think it sends a strong message if we stand in solidarity with our students, just as they did with us. Here’s the link to the petition in case you’re interested:
