McGill rejects ‘unfounded rumours’ regarding academic freedom after Andrew Potter’s resignation

McGill University is addressing what it calls “unfounded rumours and concerns regarding academic freedom” following Andrew Potter’s resignation from his post as director of the Institute for the Study of Canada.

“I want to assure members of the McGill community that academic freedom is a foundational principle of McGill University,” principal Suzanne Fortier said late Thursday in an open letter to the university community.

Potter stepped down as director on Thursday after coming under criticism for a column in Maclean’s linking a traffic jam on a Montreal highway during last week’s snowstorm to a broader “social malaise.” He will continue to teach at the school.

    These snowflakes will turn on each other and implode. I remember a Movie from 1968 called ‘Wild In the Streets’ where the youth elected a President that was just 24 years old as to rebel over the US rules for the age to be President.
    The mobs don’t want to work and just do drugs while attacking the majority of older people that were the Old USA and not as enlightened.
    Then comes a new State law to pout everyone over 30 in LSD Camps that had tainted water with LSD so they were high every day and passive to not rebel and escape.
    The ending showed how there are different level of fascists and that once you get power and pick what laws you support there will always be a minority among you that are worse pricks that rebel and want THEIR groups in power.
    islam shows us that the 1.2 billion followers seems to have thousands of self segregated groups that all point at the others as Apostates that don’t know the true islam while the most vile of them in ISIS and Boko Haram say that THEY are the true islam and have been killing other muslims as a favour to allah.
    **The last few minutes of the movie pretty well acts like an Omen for these snowflakes and BLM thugs because the 24 year old Prez screws over a few kids and walks away laughing.
    One boy looks angry and finished the Movie with a threat for everyone over 10 years old . The End .
    Just wait until these thugs purged the campus of all the sane people and then they turn in each other where the Muslims and GSA ‘s fight while the feminists and tranny’s go at it while the obese students hate the thin students and so on .
    The D students will hate the C+ students as genetically gives and Privileged just like the tall students will be hated by the short ones that don’t make the sports teams for basket ball and running.
    Here’s the trailer that now looks like the Obama campaign of free stuff and no work to do as they get welfare and food stamp .
