Re: I’m The Victim Of A Hate Crime, Coulter Says, March 23.
The students and the faculty of the University of Ottawa should respectively petition for the resignations of the provost and the president of the student federation. The actions of these two individuals with respect to Ann Coulter’s visit to campus have been inimical to the environment of free expression that must characterize any campus. If the members of the university fail to act, then the Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT) should censure the University for violating the basic mandate of free inquiry that is proper to an institution of higher learning.
