I don't actually think that would generally be the case amongst NDP supporters.

You don't think the discussion of how trans rights and women's rights might come into conflict is a relevant intellectual discussion in this age? So then, according to you, what topics should guest speakers be permitted to address on a campus?

We have held past events at a local pub boardroom as well as the public library. This will likely be my final event at WLU, though, as I graduate a couple days after. And I am not willing to cede the university to ideologues and spineless admin, and will fight it until I graduate

All of our events are open to the public. Not limited to students. The point is, they charge too much for too much security and LSOI must use our own funds to pay for others to protest and threaten our event. There's a more detailed explanation on the gofundme.

The principle of it. Universities should be THE place to explore ideas, even if politically incorrect, but Laurier continuously tries to stifle open inquiry, shut down speech, enable protestors, and intimidate us with high security fees.

Really though, it is morally reprehensible to charge $8,055 for a talk about women's rights, on a university campus. It may be difficult to fundraise this amount, especially over (Canadian) Thanksgiving weekend, but we must keep the spirit of open inquiry alive.

I love it when Laurier professors tweet about how I should get sued for defamation because of words that other people said 🙃

What confuses me about this hoax is how the authors got away with using fake names. I was editorial assistant of an academic journal in summer of 2017 (Canadian Journal of Development Studies) and one of my most basic duties was cross-checking names/credentials/titles online

What's great about Canada *is* that there is a lot of space and no people using it. Natural, wild places untouched by humans where animals can live in peace. Just because there's space it doesn't mean we need to fill it up with people...

The protestors could be heard shouting from inside the room I was speaking in, but it was only a minor disruption that caused me to lose my concentration once or twice. As long as protestors don't shut anything down I'm good.

Also, before anyone says "Whatever, the protestors were just using their free speech" I said that exact point three times during the interview but it was edited out so trust me I fully comprehend that point.

Hopefully the protestors took note that next time they should try to find an actual relevant cause to channel their energy and efforts towards
