‘Not every opinion is valid:’ Carleton University free speech wall torn down within hours
Only hours after students installed a “Free Speech Wall” at Carleton University to prove that campus free speech was alive and well, it was torn down by an activist who claimed the wall was an “act of violence,” against the gay community.

“What we wanted to promote was competition of ideas, rather than ‘if I disagree with you I’ve got to censor you,’” said Ian CoKehyeng, founder of Carleton Students for Liberty, the creators of the wall.

Installed on Monday in the Unicentre Galleria, one of campus’ most high-traffic areas, the wall was really more of a 1.2 x 1.8 meter wooden plank wrapped in paper and equipped with felt markers.

By Tuesday morning the wall was gone, destroyed in an act of “forceful resistance,” by seventh-year human rights student Arun Smith.

Hey erikkarlsson65. I have two things to say about the Sens vs Sharks game.


#1: Great game! Thanks for beating the Sharks, guys! As a Jets fan, it kinda helps :D

 
#2: Thank you so much for having my school’s basketball team at your game! The Senators is a top-class team! We are proud Ravens and we were so happy in representing Ottawa in the finals - and of course - taking the trophy home! If you guys win the Stanley Cup, you are more than welcome to come to a game at the Ravens Nest :D


Sincerely.


a proud lil Raven and Winnipeg fan.
