‘Intimidation tactics’ won’t deter free speech rally near WLU: organizers

Organizers of a free speech rally near the campus of Wilfrid Laurier University say “intimidation tactics” from “militant” leftists won’t derail support for Lindsay Shepherd, the WLU teaching assistant wrongly sanctioned for showing students a debate surrounding the merits of genderless pronouns.

Free speech advocates from WLU and nearby University of Waterloo are bracing for a possible counter-demonstration after members of Waterloo’s Revolutionary Student Movement (RSM) referred to Friday’s rally as hateful and discriminatory.
