More from Justin Trudeau’s Canada. Anti-Israel activity is rampant at the University of Toronto. In fact, the University of Toronto Graduate Students Union (GSU) referenced their support of the BDS Movement as the reason for this anti-Semitic decision. By the way, halal foods are widely available at the University of Toronto. University campuses are looking like pre-Holocaust Eastern Europe.
University of Toronto student union claims Kosher food is pro-Israel
The group’s statement comes amid an ongoing campaign to secure Kosher food on campus for Jewish students at the University of Toronto.
By Jerusalem Post, November 17, 2019:
A Jewish student at the University of Toronto wrote to the University of Toronto Graduate Students’ Union (GSU), as part of an ongoing campaign by Hillel to bring Kosher food to campus, only to get the response that GSU “[doubts] the Executive Committee will be comfortable recommending this motion given that the organization hosting it (Hillel) is openly pro-Israel.”
The email added that any efforts to bring Kosher food to campus may be against “the will of the membership,” in reference to the GSU’s adopted motion of supporting the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS), which campaigns for various cultural, economic and political boycotts of the Jewish state.
The GSU responded on Facebook, saying that any board member can submit a motion on the status of Kosher food on campus, without an indication that the Executive Committee is willing to change their stance on the issue.
The University of Toronto’s GSU is the only student union in Canada that maintains a special committee aimed at supporting and encouraging BDS. A formal complaint against the BDS committee has been sent to U of T’s Complaint and Resolution Council for Student Societies (CRCSS), which is still under review. The complaint notes that the existence of the BDS committee within a student government body representing all students, via tuition fees, violates U of T’s anti-discrimination policies.
In response to the controversy, B’nai Brith Canada CEO Michael Mostyn said that “shamefully, the GSU has been permitted for years now to cultivate a hostile attitude toward Jewish graduate students at U of T.”
