At the microphone of Patrick Lagacé, Diane Lemieux discusses the Superior Court decision which rejected McGill University’s request for an injunction aimed at removing a pro-Palestinian encampment from its campus, raising questions about the balance between private property and freedom of expression.

“The judge made an interesting remark. He said in essence: this raises complex questions, because we have to juggle the balance between the right to enjoy one’s property and freedom of expression. And we’re on private property. So, I have the feeling that the university will explore this remark from the judge. But whatever it is, I’m willing to bet that things will get out of hand. As they say, anything that sits around gets dirty.”

“The camps are multiplying. UQAM has opened an investigation into alleged theft of equipment. We see demonstrators appearing who are speaking and who sometimes seem to have an agenda different from that at the start of these camps.

“A lady showed up for the interview, introducing herself as a masked spokesperson who refused to say her name. It’s difficult to ask for transparency when you’re not. Then, he also begins to have testimonies, images of conversations that are quite virulent between pro-Palestinians and Israelis.”
