Email McMaster University to FIRE Glenn De Claire

Background Information:

Glenn De Claire was hired 4 years ago by McMaster University as the director of security in 2016. As police chief, he created initiatives intended to target marginalized community members, particularly black and indigenous people. He encouraged “carding” which is basically a system implemented in Canada where police can arbitrarily detain and put people’s (mainly black individuals) information into a system which would be stored in their database indefinitely. De Claire has worked at McMaster University for 4 years in which multiple petitions have been signed by students to fire them and they have failed. Don’t be silent and email McMaster University to take action! (sampled from IG: @fionahee)
