Students critique Carleton’s new free speech policy

January 4, 2019

Some students at Carleton University are criticizing the institution’s newfree speech policy, reports CBC. Kieran Moloney, President of the Carleton Campus Conservatives, said that the policy lacks adequate mechanisms for complaints and enforcement. Moloney also took exception to a line that gives Carleton the “right to reasonably regulate the use of facilities and the time, place and manner of speech.” According to the university, the line refers only to accommodating requests related to free speech with regards to time and space. “We have always behaved in good faith in this area. Even before this policy, we had multiple policies that existed that regulated all these issues,” said University Senate Clerk Betina Appel Kuzmarov. CBC (ON)
