CUPFA’S RESPONSE TO THE EVENTS OF MARCH 1ST, 2017

CUPFA strongly condemns the recent threats made against the University community.  We stand in solidarity with the Concordia Muslim community and express our unequivocal support for their rights of assembly and religious freedom.  We vehemently reject those voices that incite fear and repression.  Our strength lies in our diversity.  An attack against one is an affront to all.
