Remembering Donald Taylor (1943 - 2021)

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Don Taylor, professor emeritus. Dr. Taylor was one of Canada's most influential social psychologists, having made an indelible impact as a researcher on intergroup relations and as a devoted teacher. We are grateful to have had him as a colleague, mentor, and friend.
