With the University of Ottawa moving classes online, and evicting four thousand students from residences, students face precarious conditions of uncertainty in life, health, housing, and academia due to COVID.

We call to the University of Ottawa, the Dean of each Faculty, and the President, Jacques Frémont to consider to only humane solution: Make pass/failing classes an option for students this semester.
