A motion put forth by McGill University students who support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement has failed.
Students had initially voted Tuesday in favour of the motion to boycott Israel, which was put forth by a group called the McGill BDS Action Network.
But the initial vote then had to be ratified. In the online ratification process, 57 per cent (or 2,819 people) voted against while 43 per cent (2,119 people) voted in favour.
The initial vote, which took place during a general assembly at the university, drew about 900 people.
Over the last week, Jewish students at the school have reported being the targets of anti-Semitic slurs and feeling generally unsafe on campus.
