Pro-lifers charged with "non-academic misconduct"

UCalgary Students could face expulsion for refusing to amend anti-abortion display

The University of Calgary has taken another staggering step in their messy dealings with Campus Pro-Life.

According to the Calgary Herald, seven students have now been charged with non-academic misconduct for refusing to turn their provocative anti-abortion signs inward during an April 8 display. The students could face expulsion.

The same incident resulted in trespassing charges last year, but the Crown Prosecutor’s Office stayed the charges in November.

Alas, just another push for selective free speech from a pseudo-private institution.
