University of Alberta’s $17,500 security fee on pro-life event gags free speech: anti-abortion club

A campus anti-abortion club says the University of Alberta is muzzling free speech by charging it a $17,500 “security fee” to stage a pro-life event.

UAlberta Pro-Life says it applied last month to set up a stationary educational display on campus Tuesday and Wednesday, showing ultrasound images of fetuses and photos of aborted ones.

But the registered campus club received notice from the U of A 11 days before the event that it had to pay $17,500 to cover the costs of providing security.

    U of A is run by Brownshirts

    It would have been free to instead say that student terrorists would be expelled.

  • But I thought pro-abortionists were rational and non-violent.

    HA! I made myself laugh.

    So your taxes will pay for abortion, but not police protection against fascists.

    Oh…the tolerant inclusive diversified moral marxist leftist of the West…..what would 90% of the population do without your authoritarian wisdom/

  • vimy

    They should make a freedom of information request for the security fees charged too all the other groups on campus for their events

  • It’s like a Mafia extortion racket: “Pay us protection and we’ll make sure that your business doesn’t ‘accidentally’ burn down”.

    So they need 6 guards constantly protecting a booth on abortion for two days?

    That says a lot about how peaceful the left is to opposing ideas.

    I’m surprised they aren’t billing them for counselling services for all the snow flakes who were “triggered” by seeing the display.
