Outgoing uSask Chancellor urges students to fight racism with compassion

October 25, 2016

Outgoing University of Saskatchewan Chancellor Blaine Favel gave a speech last week urging students from the school’s fall graduating class to speak openly about racism and to fight it with compassion. Favel specifically targeted American Republican candidate Donald Trump in warning students not to fall victim to the “hatred” and “false differences” between groups and cultures. “Change has to start here and the change has to start by talking about it,” he told the hundreds of graduating students. “The hardest goal for all of us is just simply to be kind sometimes.”  Saskatoon StarPhoenix
