TORONTO — Three Toronto-area universities have taken down posters around campus that appear to advertise a union for white students.
The University of Toronto, Ryerson University and York University all say the group, called Students for Western Civilization, was not sanctioned at any of the schools and not allowed to put up the posters.
The flyers show two white men in front of a picture of the CN Tower with the words “White Students Union!” pointing to their website.
On the website, there is an article saying York University’s student paper, Excalibur, refused to publish a piece titled “York Needs A White Students Union!”
The piece says a white students’ union would promote and celebrate the culture of western civilization.
The people behind the group couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.
