This is a historical moment for students and our organisations.

Statement on Fords 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.
