Our Francophone students, faculty and staff are at home here. We must denounce comments that undermine La Francophonie with the same ardour as racist and discriminatory comments against other groups or communities; the same goes for comments that question the place of Francophones at the University of Ottawa.
Studies and research on Franco-Ontarian, Québec, French-Canadian and international Francophonies are a common thread that links the past, present and future of our Faculty. We affirm, loud and clear, that the University of Ottawa is an inclusive community that rejects all forms of discrimination and racism. The fight against discrimination and racism must unite, not divide.
