York U. Student Files Complaint Against Univ.; Says Univ. Tolerated Environment Hostile to Jews

The Jewish Telegraphic Agency website reports today (March 27, 2011) that a student at Canada's York University has filed a complaint with Ontario's Human Rights Tribunal, alleging that the university tolerated an environment hostile to Jews.

Sammy Katz claims that he and other Jewish students were subjected to physical and verbal abuse at a pro-Israel event on the university's Toronto campus in February 2010.

In the complaint -- released March 24, 2011 by Katz's lawyers -- Katz claims he was subsequently vindicated in his claims and that York had "spun its own inaccurate version of the episode."

Canadian universities in recent years have seen a flurry of tensions between pro- and anti-Israel groups. A year ago, York expelled a student who allegedly advocated genocide against the Jews.
