Shapiro At ‘The Hill’: ACLU’s Diminishing Interest In Free Speech Marks A Foreboding Shift in American Culture

So, I may not be welcome in Canada.

According to the University of British Columbia (UBC) student newspaper, student Reid Marcus encouraged the UBC Needs Feminism Facebook group to write to the university’s provost, academic vice president and equity offices to protest an upcoming speaking engagement. Marcus suggested that my words might violate the British Columbia Human Rights Code — particularly its sections on discriminatory publication. The BC Human Rights Code states, in relevant part: “A person must not publish, issue or display, or cause to be published, issued or displayed, any statement, publication, notice, sign, symbol, emblem or other representation that … is likely to expose a person or a group or class of persons to hatred or contempt.”
