“Barbara Kay: A new Salon des Refusés”
The National Post’s Barbara Kay reports on the recent TVO panel discussion devoted to the status of free speech at universities in Canada, as CAFE advisor, Janice Fiamengo, and CFI Policy Director, Justin Trottier, “square off” on TVO’s The Agenda against York University feminist academic Alice MacLachlan and Huffington Post blogger/protester Rachel Décoste.

Kay writes, “Décoste’s position was that since Fiamengo’s talk was “drivel” and full of “untruths,” she had no right to speak. But Décoste had not heard or read the talk; and Fiamengo’s so-called “drivel” is to many people, including me, fair and reasonable comment.”

Also, a blurb appeared on the same day in the National Post’s A Section by Tristan Hopper.
