Luke Sabourin is a 3rd year student at Queen’s University Faculty of Law.
The Queen’s University Faculty of Law has recently become something of a flashpoint in the ongoing “culture war” over historical figures in Canada and the world. On September 18, 2020, the faculty board of the law school held a non-binding vote to change the name of the law building. The non-binding vote went 29–5–3 in favour of changing the current name, Sir John A. Macdonald Hall, to something else. (Note: Since the time of writing, the Queen’s University Board of Trustees has officially approved the name change.)
