Youth Protecting Youth: Calgary students take university to court over free speech

This post was written for Youth Protecting Youth by ypyinfoofficer. It does not necessarily represent the views of NCLN.

A press release was sent out today via the National Campus Life Network that members of the pro-life club at the University of Calgary will be going to court. They are hopeful that the courts will quash a decision by the University of Calgary, which found seven students guilty of non-academic misconduct for setting up a controversial pro-life display on the university campus.

Having experienced our own struggles with freedom of expression on the campus of the University of Victoria (although not with the University, but with the Student’s Society), Youth Protecting Youth stands in solidarity with Campus Pro-life Calgary and is hopeful that the court system will uphold the free speech rights of the students involved. The press release in its entirety can be found on the National Campus Life Network website, found here.
