After Toronto’s Ryerson University cancelled a conference about the state of free speech on campus out of concern that a free speech discussion might offend someone, Canada Christian College made their facility available so the event could take place.
This past Saturday, many who still care about freedom of speech, freedom of expression and freedom of assembly, gathered.
Due to the threat of violent disruption from the likes of Antifa, there was a large police presence at the college and the 1,500-plus attendees were subjected to airport-style security searches by guards.
But, “The Stifling of Free Speech on University Campuses” event went ahead, featuring free speech champions such as Gad Saad, Oren Amitay, and Jordan Peterson.
Event moderator, Sarina Singh, describes herself as a “recovering social worker” noting she used to proudly label herself a feminist and social justice warrior until concluding after 20 years in the field, that her industry is “corrupt... if you deviate from a Marxist, feminist, transgender, etc. philosophy, you will be demoted or fired.”
Each speaker described the climate of censorship as mandated by the Thought Police and noted, it’s spreading.
This growing trend of the tyranny of the minority had the speakers warning that it’s now incumbent upon the silent majority to step up and reclaim our diminished freedoms or risk losing those freedoms forever.
In the long run, the price one pays for speaking out is less than the price one will eventually pay for not speaking out.
