Details are still emerging about the tragic shootings today at Dawson College, a junior college located in Montreal. McGill operations have not been affected and all McGill classes and activities are continuing as scheduled.
We are currently experiencing problems with the file servers. Access is slow or not available on some departmental folders.
Our deepest sympathies go to family members and friends who suffered loss and our heartfelt hopes for speedy recovery are with those who were injured or harmed. McGill is offering to help Dawson College and the victims in any way we can and provide counselling to students in the wake of this tragedy.
