The Lindsay Shepherd controversy erupted last month after the first-year Communications Studies teaching assistant had the temerity to encourage a civil debate amongst her students on the topic of gender pronouns.
To foster an exchange of ideas, Shepherd played a clip from TVO public affairs show The Agenda featuring University of Toronto professor Jordan Peterson.
A complaint led to a star chamber proceeding. Lindsay recorded the interrogation which received worldwide media coverage — for the most part condemning the University’s heavy-handed tactics against freedom of speech and expression.
In the aftermath, university president Deborah MacLatchy committed to an investigation further promising to act “on the recommendations that come out of the report.”
But, it has now been revealed that the results of the report won’t be made public!
If the recommendations in the report will remain secret and nobody other than a select few will know what what they are, then what was the point of having an investigation?
