I am here to ask for your help. Pregnancy Care Centers around the world have helped thousands of women choose life for their unborn baby. And right now the Kamloops PCC has been given and incredible opportunity to win $25,000 to help the women that come to them. Then have been nominated for Joeys Only’s Community Revival Project and we need your votes! Anyone can vote from anywhere in the world, with as many email addresses as they have. So I am asking you to share this and encourage your friends to please help us. We only have til the end of November! If we can save even one little life it is worth it…Alissa
Although I am fundamentally commited to pro-choice, as a Carleton student I am appalled that the right to a free exchange of ideas is being violated by my university and my student council, and they *will* be hearing from me. Good for you for standing up for what you believe in, and good luck with the re-instatement of the club.
Here’s what I’m writing your President and Vice-Chancellor:
Dr. Roseann O’Reilly Runte,
President and Vice-Chancellor
As a former instructor at Carleton University, I encourage you to do the right thing regarding Carleton Lifeline, and protect the free-speech rights of these Canadian students.
If I had time, I am sure that I could investigate the groups allowed by the Student Union to operate on campus, and find ones with views that varying numbers of Canadians would reject, and with good cause. The academic environment, however, and the university, with its policy of tenure, are meant to protect, not one set of ideas, but the free exchange of ideas, the honest seeking and statement of truth, and not stifling, anti-intellectual conformity to currently prevailing political views, put forward under the flimsy guise of an “anti-discrimination policy.”
Carleton can do better. Please do what you can to make a difference.
