University Of Toronto Should Rescind Faith Goldy’s Student Leadership Award, Say Past Winners
Letter to U of T Alumni Association describes the former Rebel personality as a "prominent writer and commentator in the white nationalist movement."

Update (March 26, 2:13 p.m. EDT): In a letter addressed to petition co-organizer Gavin Nowlan [pdf], the University of Toronto says it will not revoke Goldy’s award, because a student’s leadership contributions “are judged according to what they have contributed at the time of the award” and that it would therefore “be inappropriate to rescind the award granted to Ms. Goldy-Bazos in 2012.”

Ahead of Faith Goldy’s planned talk at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo Tuesday evening, nearly 80 past recipients of a University of Toronto student award asked their alma mater to rescind the same honour it once presented to the alt-right personality.
