Laurier university professors launch petition over free speech controversy

Post by Guest on Thu Nov 23, 2017 12:14 am

A group of professors at Wilfrid Laurier University in Ontario have launched a petition urging the school to embrace more open free speech policies.

The petition calls for the school to accept a resolution titled “The Laurier Statement for Freedom of Expression” amid backlash that the university infringed on the academic freedom of teaching assistant Lindsay Shepherd.

“It is axiomatic that intellectual inquiry, critical reflection and scholarly integrity are NOT POSSIBLE in an institution that prevents some ideas from being articulated,” a statement from the professors reads.
