Does Campus Watch have any Canadian branch or affiliates? A similar survey of mid-east studies at Canadian universities and colleges [c.e.g.e.p`s] would prove most enlightening, in the shadow of the Concordia University hate-fest last year, against allowing B. Netanyahu the right to speak.

This incident occured in an English university in Quebec. What about our French speaking universities in Quebec [ Universitie du Montreal or U.Q.A.M ]?

I have recentlly discussed with two Jewish students the present situation at their university [U.M.] vis a vis the arab/muslim-jewish relationship and the "Quebecois".
