A group that says universities promote "hatred towards white people" wants to set up a "White Students Union" at Montreal's McGill University to, in its words, "advocate for the interests of that ethnic group towards whom expressions of hatred are not only tolerated but promoted by our universities themselves."

The idea was brought forth by Students for Western Civilization, a group that says it "advocates for the rights, interests and identity of European-Canadians."

"Canadian universities like McGill have many ethnicity based student groups, but none which defend the special interests of white students," Students for Western Civilization said in a statement.

 

MTL Blog reached out to McGill University for a comment. This article will be updated when we receive a response.

In a statement, Students for Western Civilization spokesperson George Hutcheson said that the group does not promote white supremacy.

He said its "interests include combating anti-white hate speech; fighting anti-white discrimination; promoting viewpoint diversity in academia and the media; and preserving and enhancing our cultural heritage."
