Doug Ford policy may defund student papers, panned as "direct hit" to free speech or something

Rob ShimshockRebel Contributor

Ontario Premier Doug Ford’s new education policy may keep student fees away from left-wing organizations including student newspapers.

Fees that support academics, recreation, health and counselling can stay, but the Canadian University Press is less than thrilled to have fewer extorted dollars. They're all that stand between the students and chaos!

As usual ANdrew misses the point that left wing whiners who censor and silence all the time are saying this will stifle free speech when it does no such thing.

If the students are so left then the papers should do fine without forced funding. Same as the media right Andrew? LMAO!

Andrew if by left you mean they censor and silence then maybe so.

Andrew Stephenson then let them pay for it. Quit forcing your views on us.

The left have steadily been incubating underachievers in schools increasingly over the last 2 decades and journalistic integrity seems to have taken the hardest hit. Paying the best rewards to work for the “deep state”. If you want to get paid to be a writer, why don’t you write something interesting and meaningful to people. Otherwise your not a writer of free speech at all but a state owned punk. Good article Rob! Great job Doug!

Andrew said, "It’s only left wing because the vast majority of university students are. "

That’s right Andrew, because the only thing taught in Public High Schools is Left Wing crap. I read that in the States many Companies will only hire University Grads from Private University’s.

Apparently the universities will decide what counts as exempt, which is to say that student media may well be included in the list.

It’s only left wing because the vast majority of university students are.

Ford is a genius when it comes to quickly stamping out biased left wing crap.
