McGill students express anxiety, await update on misconduct investigation

January 21, 2021
Some McGill University students have said that they are “anxious for an update into an investigation” into sexual misconduct allegations against a student. CBC reports that several students have said they are uncomfortable seeing the student’s name appear in their online Zoom classes, particularly classes that use breakout rooms. CBC explains that McGill must complete the investigation into the allegations within 90 days. “The entirety of this process is covered by confidentiality regulations imposed on us by law, and as such, details or updates concerning particular cases cannot be provided to anyone outside those immediately involved,” explains Cynthia Lee, associate director of media relations for McGill.
