Boycott of Israel delayed by University of Windsor students
Student association defers decision to adopt a boycott of companies with ties to Israel
There's still no decision on campus about whether the University of Windsor Student Alliance will adopt a referendum vote that would boycott companies with ties to Israel.
Student council on Thursday night decided to defer the decision.
Essentially, the decision is in agreement with university president Alan Wildeman, who urged the students to hold off on ratifying the vote until an administration investigation into the vote could be completed.
Wildeman said the school received complaints about the process.
Jordan Renaud was on student council two years ago and is still a student. He agrees with the decision.
"I think it is in the best interest of the entire school, given that is what the administration and Dr. Wildeman's purview is," Renaud said. "It is about respecting the school overall, and not just particular groups' interests, and not even particular councillors' interests, but looking at what is in the best interests of this university."
The issue will be on the next scheduled agenda, likely March 26.
