Jason Kenny: Minister Of Way Passed Cheap Assed

Let me get this straight. A guy whose department has seen expenses rise 35 per cent on his watch won't cough up $1,000 to cover his own security tab, and so cancels his March 10 speech at York U and implies its the fault of anti-Semites? Sounds like the guy didn't want to go to York (who does?) and speak in front of losers (= 99% of the York Student body--if you're a Dork or can hold a fork you can go to York--I can say that because I'm an alumni). But he wanted to frame his cancellation in terms a little more heroic than "I need to stay home and bathe my hamster".

Just a more politically correct way of the university shutting down the debate. I'd bet had he given in to their shakedown, they would still cancel the event.

Exactly ridenrain. Who would want to waste a few hours of their lives they can never get back on Jason Kenney?

Thanks for pointing that our RR!

No sad lament for the loss of free and open discussion however. After all, what's a few rights when an election is to be had.

Such faux concern ridofbrain

Did ridofbrain show such concern for free speech when George Galloway came to town? Inquiring minds want to know.

Galloway was stopped by the government, not by a mob. Totally different thing.
How about Ann Coulter?

Coulter cancelled herself after her staff were unable to rent a room of the appropriate size.

Actually Galloway gave several speeches when he finally won the right to enter the country, despite the Reformacons best efforts. Apparently there is still some rule of law in the country.

ridenrain said...

Galloway now supports Ahmadinejad so I guess we'll have him speaking at a Canadian university soon also?

ridenrain said...

Same sort of things with Christie Blatchford, Ehud Barak, and Mark Steyn?
Not letting people speak is cowardly.

Morley said...

So is choosing not to speak and then blaming someone else for not being allowed to.

$1,000? I guess this is not a big deal for us.
