Ontario Premier Ford claims to be a champion of free speech but is undermining the ability of students to be heard. His plan to disallow universal dues collection for democratically chosen student associations and projects will effectively silence the strongest student voices on campus and deny important services and programs. What will this mean for students, for our universities and colleges? Why should Canadians care?

Panelists:

Len Findlay, Distinguished University Professor Emeritus, University of Saskatchewan

Nour Alideeb, Chairperson, Canadian Federation of Students-Ontario

Moderator: James L. Turk, Director, Centre for Free Expression & Distinguished Visiting Professor, Ryerson University
