New free speech rules at Alberta's Keyano College sets off panic among Edmonton journalists

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, the Edmonton Journal's push to label the local Keyano College's new free speech declaration as  “controversial” was covered and compared to the Journal's historic approach to censorship.

Calling the new freedom of speech rules “controversial” means nothing, other than that the Edmonton Journal is trying to be negative, but don't have a solid footing on which to make the case.

The new rules were rolled out following Alberta Premier Jason Kenney's new law requiring post-secondary to agree on pro-free speech pledges.

BRUCE ATCHISON…I remember it being controversial back in the 1960’s and Pierre Burton getting death threats for being outspoken. My highschool year book (graduation 1968) has my picture with the quote “Say what you think not what you aught”.

Over the years people like academics have thought it might be a good idea for Canada to be like the campus of their university with it’s strict speech codes and lawyers think that the civility demanded in a court room should be universal…then we elect them to parliament which has similar rules of order.

They loose sight of a Canada that is free range and free speech.

Since when is free speech considered a “controversial” matter? Maybe This country should be renamed Adanac since we’re so backward these days.
