Protect Free Speech
Canadian universities should be a place for education – a place where young adults can be exposed to new ideas and have their opinions challenged.
But all across North America, free speech on campus is under attack!
This latest example is especially troubling.
A university administration bullied a young grad student and made a ridiculous comparison: that her playing a recording of a debate panel on a public broadcaster was like playing a speech by Hitler.
… and it happened right here in Canada!
Universities should be a place to foster free flowing dialogue and debate.
It should not be a place that allows the shut-down of debate because it’s a topic someone might disagree with.
Free speech matters and should be allowed everywhere – especially on university campuses!
