Ontario premiere ties school funding to free speech on campus!

This was too much to even dare hope for! But here it is. And such a clear and obvious measure to restore reason. I mean reason in the most literal sense, not a metaphor for ‘what I believe in, defines reason’, but the actual implementation of reason and debate over Marxist and Islamic restriction on speech and thought, which public has been funding for decades now.

I should add how delighted I am to have been wrong about Ford.

From the Globe and Mail:

Ontario Premier Doug Ford has warned universities and colleges they will face funding cuts if they fail to adopt free-speech policies that defend controversial speakers on campus and decline to stop shielding students from opinions some might find offensive.

 

Following a number of high-profile protests over the past year against speakers at Ontario universities, Mr. Ford promised during the spring election campaign that he would tie funding to free speech on campus. The government announced on Thursday it will give schools four months to design, implement and enforce wide-ranging free-speech policies.

 

“Colleges and universities should be places where students exchange different ideas and opinions in open and respectful debate,” Mr. Ford said in a statement released by his office on Thursday afternoon. “Our government made a commitment to the people of Ontario to protect free speech on campuses.”

 

Mr. Ford and Merrilee Fullerton, the Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities, were not available for comment.

  1. Finally! A Western academic who’s willing to admit that people DO NOT have a right not to be offended. This is one of the first in a major series of steps aimed at discomfiting those who remain perpetually aggrieved.

    Constant motion towards conditions that are increasingly less welcoming is the key. Everyone, get dogs, big ones that can do serious damage to the human body. Whenever possible, walk them right before prayer times.

    They want to be perpetually aggrieved? Just wait until Caucasians master that little ploy.

  2. I like how blithely they call Faith Goldie a “white nationalist” and a “supremacist activist” without any shame for how meaningless and misleading those terms are. Do they think that Faith wants to kick all the non-whites out of Canada and have a whites-only future? That would be funny if it wasn’t so insulting. I guess they use these meaningless-but-scary terms in order to escape the libel charges they so richly deserve.

    Faith Goldie is just a conservative journalist and activist but she’s not a white-supremacist. But you know what? Even if she were a “white-supremacist” she would still have the right to speak about it at a university or anywhere else. We are slipping ever-closer into becoming a place where freedom of speech and freedom of everything else is denied us, just like China or Iran. And just ask the Chinese and the Iranians how hard it is to get that freedom back…
