We are suing York University and YFS to implement and enforce policies that will ensure the end of hate speech at York University.
Given that this issue is similar on university campuses across Canada, we intend to issue class actions against other universities.
We write to provide you with an update. To date, we have issued claims against York University, Queens University, University of British Columbia, Concordia University, and Toronto Metropolitan University. We will be working towards setting a timetable and moving these claims forward. Please contact our firm if you have experienced antisemitism at any University within Canada.
There is a decades-long documented history of this anti-Semitic rhetoric at York University and by the YFS. This anti-Semitism is always couched in the language of free speech, of being only against the Israeli government but not Jews, and speaking up for Palestinians. However, the truth is that these rationalizations are a disingenuous and convenient cover for anti-Jewish hate. Jewish students are left unsafe and unwelcome at a university that professes to be a safe space for all views and all people.

A class action is a lawsuit which provides a method for a large group of people with common claims to come together to advance one claim on behalf of the group. Class actions are more efficient and cost-effective and allow for groups of people with common claims to gain access to the legal system and seek justice on their behalf.
A certification motion is where the court determines whether an action can be pursued as a class action. The court considers factors such as whether the claims of the class members raise common legal and/or factual issues and whether a class action is the preferable method of pursuing the claims (as opposed to individual actions).
