Bonjour K, Here is a link to the «Subjunctivisor» on this site. I searched it and was unable to locate haïr as a verb that needs the subjunctive; however, Aurèlie gave a response that indicates yes: «The answer is yes: haïr is a synonym of détester, though less commonly used nowadays, and just like détester, will be followed by Le Subjonctif: Je hais que tu sois si parfait ! I hate that you are so perfect! » Bonne chance ! Ron

Bonjour K ! You are right: "haïr" and "détester" are indeed synonyms in this context. Thanks to you, I've now updated the question to accept this alternate correct answer: "Nous ne haïssons pas qu'elle soit là." Merci et à bientôt !
