MONTREAL – A Quebec judge has rejected a request for an injunction against an encampment erected by pro-Palestinian activists on the McGill University campus .

Two students at the Montreal university had asked Quebec Superior Court to order protesters to move at least 100 metres from school buildings, saying their presence had created an environment of aggression.

Superior Court Justice Chantal Masse ruled today that the plaintiffs failed to demonstrate that their access to the school was being impeded.

More coming.
