The role of military research at McGill was another contentious issue at the Town Hall. Cleve Higgins, also an activist with GRASPé, asked if the Principal could morally “stand for research at McGill of weapons that are killing people around the world.”

In response, Munroe-Blum said that McGill has an integrity policy that applies to all research at the University, but added that “the way science is going today…it is impossible to come up with research that won’t benefit the military.”
