Free speech on campus

According to the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, more than 25 out of 60 Canadian universities fail the campus free speech test.

That organization says Mount Allison earned a grade of “F” for providing a very poor policy framework around free expression and academic freedom. The Centre says Mount A maintains speech code-rules, which prohibit speech that could be considered controversial or offensive.

In addition, some student unions earned an “F” for their imposition of speech codes, including the one at Mt. A.
