university. A wise saying from Kate at Small Dead Animals. A Canadian conference on the subject.
Canadian universities are increasingly leftist indoctrination centres. Turning out vast numbers of kids who are virtually unemployable from the arts and humanities faculties. In the Us student debt has reached $1 trillion.
CALGARY — Freedom of expression is under attack on Canada's university campuses, according to speakers Saturday at a national civil liberties conference at the University of Calgary.
The RightsWatch conference, now in its third year, brought together academics, activists and legal professionals for two days of debate and discussion.
Former University of Calgary Students’ Union president Charlotte Kingston said she’s seen disputes on several university campuses — ranging from Memorial University of Newfoundland’s decision to deny club status to a pro-life group in 2007 to the uproar over the cancellation of a speech by American right-wing politician Ann Coulter during a visit to the University of Ottawa in 2010.
“We’ve seen several campuses misunderstand their role as representatives by asserting policy of which views they consider tolerable and views which they don’t,” Kingston said.
