Former British MP George Galloway criticized the Harper government’s support of what he called the Israeli siege of Palestine in front of a packed house at Montreal’s Université de Québec à Montréal last Wednesday.
Galloway’s speech, entitled “Free Palestine. Free Afghanistan. Free Speech,” was originally meant to be part of a five-city tour before the former MP was banned from coming to Canada in 2009, an issue that Galloway addressed with humour.
Canadian Senator Anne Cools spoke to Concordia University students on Oct. 22, seeking to “expose the reality of domestic violence” by eliminating stereotypes of men being the primary abusers of women in conjugal disputes.
