No wonder the reputation of the university of ottawa is fast fading. To think this loser censor was actually justice minister. This the caliber of the pseudo chretien grits, the party against Judaeo Christian values. allan rock is behind the a#$ houle. He admits being the chief censor. He claims he didn't want to ban Ann Coulter, but that's exactly what he and his thought police managed to do.I wonder if he uses his gun registry cost estimate method, for university accounting.
No wonder he has been in hiding for the last month. allan rock is an embarrassment for the university of ottawa, an embarrassment for all lawyers and an embarrassment for Canada. I guess he skipped the class on free speech and fairness. If you are a u of o alumnus, left your uni know that you want the whole admin to be fired. Stop giving this organization money until rock and his co censors are shown the door.
Rock's vice-president of academic affairs, François Houle, was roasted by the media for writing a letter informing Coulter of Canada's hate-speech laws and advising her to watch her step. "It was sent on behalf of the administration with my knowledge, so I share responsibility," Rock said. "I acknowledge that there were other and better ways of achieving the letter's purpose."
Of the letter, Rock says, "It could be seen as having a chilling effect and they say there is some selectivity if you send it to some speakers and not others. I accept those criticisms."
He told the university senate that he hopes to develop a new policy on free speech, based on the university's "collective view" of what free speech is. A proposal is expected at the senate's next meeting.
