STATEMENT ON FORD’S FREEDOM OF SPEECH MANDATE
To Premier Doug Ford,
On behalf of the University of Guelph Central Student Association (CSA),
On September 26, 2018, our board passed a motion to condemn the Ontario government’s directive to create “free speech” policies on University and College campuses across Ontario. We oppose this mandate, and we view this as a challenge to our autonomy, and an initiative meant to interfere with students’ freedom of expression.
On November 22nd, the University of Guelph Central Student Association voted to ratify the Proposed Minutes of Settlement established by representatives and legal counsel of the CSA, CFS, CFS-O and the University of Guelph. See the document below to to be advised of the results of the Vote and a summary of the reasoning in connection with the Vote as it relates to the views expressed by the students at the Town Hall Meeting.

Earlier this year, clubs were being consulted about a construction project occurring in the CSA Clubs Hallway. As part of the consultation process, clubs were informed that they could meet one-on-one with a CSA Executive to perform a needs assessment for their club to ensure that the new space was able to accommodate as much as possible. Photo Arts Club requested to have this needs assessment done. In this assessment, they were informed that their space would not be affected by the CSA Clubs Hallway renovations, but that there would be future renovations that would affect their space.
