on behalf of Michael Di Grappa, Vice-Principal (Administration and Finance) The McGill University Non-academic Certified Association (MUNACA) began a general strike at 6 a.m. this morning.

As more details come to light on the bombing and shootings that killed 76 people in Norway on Friday, some members of the McGill community may be concerned about loved ones, friends or colleagues who may have been affected by this tragedy.

Please note that the sidewalk in front of Wilson Hall (3506 University St.) has been cordoned off and the University St. exit/entrance to the building has been closed for the next few days.

The University will have a contractor on site to remove this material before the end of the week. The
McGill University Safety staff will be working with SOS Richelieu to volunteer with the cleanup efforts and provide much-needed relief to thousands of victims.

As part of a redesign of the www.mcgill.ca website, we're overhauling the McGill home page and we need your help to make sure it does everything you need it to do.
