The Ryerson Faculty Association and its members are outraged and saddened by the recent shootings at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.  We see this act as a direct repercussion of the hateful discourse taking place in many countries, which encourages anti-Semitism, xenophobia, islamophobia, and other racist actions.  Innocent people are now being harmed, and killed, as a result of the use of hate speech.   Our sorrow and sympathies go to the families and communities affected by this terrible act.
