‘Ninth Floor’ Doc Explores An Ugly Event At Montreal University In ’69

Ninth Floor

Ninth Floor

In 1969 six students of Caribbean descent attending Sir George Williams University in Montreal accused one of its professors of being a racist.

When the school inadequately addressed their accusation it sparked an extended sit-in on the ninth floor of the school’s computer building.

A suspicious fire, riot police, arrests and some peculiar agent provocateurism later, the result was one of the ugliest racial incidents in Canadian history.

Vancouver filmmaker Mina Shum recently revisited this not-well-known event for her new documentary, Ninth Floor.

I talked to her about it for Samaritan Mag.
