Why this petition matters

Started by Simona Haynes

With the arrival of the sixth wave of the new covid "BA.2" in Quebec, Montreal these days experiences more cases than before.

According to the official Quebec government website, Quebec sees more than 3,000 new cases a day recently and the trend is on the rise as most restrictions are lifted last week. More worryingly, there are many hidden positive cases that go unreported due to overloaded testing capacity.

"Montreal-based study estimates Quebec saw up to 32,000 new daily COVID-19 cases last week"

"COVID updates, April 1: Quebec schools saw 75% jump in pandemic-related absences this week"

Meanwhile, within just one week, 473 positive cases were reported due to the cancellation of social distancing and the vaccine passport on campus, which is a much larger number than ever and it's so scary and worrying.

While most students and staff are vaccinated, the high number of reported and unreported positive cases on campus with the sixth wave for new covid variant in Quebec have made us even more nervous about final exams.

Therefore, we hope that the McGill University can convert the Winter 2022 in-person final exams in April to the online format, in order to ensure the health and safety of every student and employee, and also to make the administration and the process of the exam simpler and more efficient.

At the same time, everyone is welcome to comment and forward this petition so that more people can see it.
