Laurier teaching assistant Lindsay Shepherd launches $3.6M lawsuit for university free speech abuses

A teaching assistant who endured a “vicious lambasting” and campaign of vitriol after daring to air a televised debate by cutting-edge professor and best-selling authour Jordan Peterson has filed a $3.6 million lawsuit against two professors, a bureaucrat and their employer Wilfrid Laurier University.

Lindsay Shepherd is seeking $1,000,000 in punitive damages and $500,000 apiece for harassment, intentional infliction of nervous shock, negligence, aggravated and general damages, plus $100,000 for constructive dismissal.
