TORONTO. x–18s. The University of Toronto has issued a trespass notice to those participating in a pro-Palestinian encampment that has been set up on campus for weeks, vowing to take all necessary legal steps if the protestors don’t clear out by Monday morning. The notice comes after the university made an offer to the protestors yesterday — with a 24-hour deadline — aimed at ending the protest. Encampment spokesperson Erin Mackey says university administrators have agreed to meet on Sunday at 5 p-m for continued negotiations.
