Commentary | Dear Madame Principal

Resolution of the McGill Philosophy department

On November 14, at a regular meeting of the Philosophy department, it was resolved that we should, as a department, express our outrage at the brutal treatment by the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal of our colleague Professor Greg Mikkelson and a number of our students on November 10 on McGill’s campus. We ask that you offer public assurances that all members of the McGill community will be able to move, speak and assemble freely and without fear of harassment at our University. We are shocked that you have failed as yet to express, in your communications to the McGill community, any concern or distress for the students and faculty who were assaulted.

Signed by the McGill Philosophy department.
