Good morning Maple readers. On Tuesday, Canada voted for a resolution at the UN General Assembly to call for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza, a move that human rights activists said shows the Trudeau government is finally listening to the demands of Palestine solidarity protests.

As we have reported, these protests have frequently been met unkindly by government officials and law enforcement services.
