JCCF files court action against ULethbridge in response to cancelled Widdowson talk


Sources report that the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF) has filed a court action against the University of Lethbridge after the university cancelled a talk by a controversial speaker in February. The court action was filed on behalf of speaker and former Mount Royal University professor Frances Widdowson, ULethbridge Professor Paul Viminitz, and ULethbridge student Jonah Pickle. “The court action seeks a declaration that UofL breached the applicants’ freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, and freedom of peaceful assembly guaranteed under the Charter, as well as an injunction requiring the [university] to permit the event to proceed on campus,” said JCCF.
