Students insist McGill statue must go

A group of McGill students is keeping up the pressure to remove the statue of James McGill, which dates from 1996 and is more casual than idolatrous, but nonetheless, it must go. There’s meant to be a demonstration on Saturday. The next step will have to be the removal of his offensive name from the university.

Update: The Gazette talks to one of McGill’s ten Black professors about systemic racism at the university.
