When Middle East Politics Invade the Campus

Liberal McGill President kathleen Klein and Conservative President Jess Weiser







Yesterday I attended an event with MP Marc Garneau and HM Minster John Baird. It was an event cosponsored by Liberal McGill and Conservative McGill at Hillel house. Both of them roundly condemned Israeli apartheid week. It was nice to see bipartisan support against this hate filled week of events. I had a nice chat with Mr Garneau about osteoporosis and space travel. I must say he is a grit , but he is a most gracious and soft spoken man. Each spoke for 10 minutes and then there were questions. A question was asked about the threats to members of Conservative McGill. Both Garneau and Baird said the threats must be taken seriously and investigated.
A question was also asked about hopefully ,soon to be ex student rector, nick day. Hm Min Baird graduated from Queen's and both men denounced day's editorial in favour of IAW. Some students from Queens were in the room.
A great event against IAW.


here is the video of that event I attended last month in Toronto:When Middle east Politics Invade the Campus.
