Motion against Jewish student in Montreal rejected

The Student’s Society of McGill University’s (SSMU) Board of Directors on Monday rejected a discriminatory motion by the SSMU’s Legislative Council that called for the resignation of Jewish student and SSMU councilor Jordyn Wright. The motion had called for Wright’s resignation because she agreed to participate in a trip to Israel.

The story came to light after Wright described what happened in a post on her Facebook page, noting that she was the only student facing dismissal from the Board of Directors despite the fact that two other Board members who are not Jewish had also planned on going on the trip.
