Campus pro-life groups regain status

  • February 19, 2009
{mosimage}The battle for freedom of speech on Canadian university campuses has resulted in two more pro-life clubs regaining status with their student unions. 

Choose Life McGill, the pro-life club at McGill University in Montreal, regained status Feb. 12, and Youth Protecting Youth, a club at the University of Victoria in British Columbia, rejoined the ranks of other ratified clubs Feb. 10.

Both decisions came soon after a letter was sent to all student unions by the Canadian Civil Liberties Association which encouraged freedom of speech, stating, “The proper response is argument, not censorship.”

A pro-life club at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ont., is waiting to hear if it will also receive status.
