One of the most contentious issues has become the limits of free speech.
On the one hand free speech has been “weaponized by the right,” as was recently exemplified by Milo Yiannopoulos’s ill-fated speaking engagement at UC Berkeley. Free speech becomes the opportunity to provoke, insult and even threaten members of vulnerable communities. On the other hand, free speech is vital not only to liberal-democratic institutions, but also to the activity of political dissent and ultimately the possibility of radical alternatives that break dramatically with the status quo.
Director of the SFU Institute for the Humanities, Samir Gandesha, will reflect on the dilemma of Free speech and expression and academic freedom. His lecture will be followed by responses from Morgane Oger and Josh Paterson of the BCCLA.

On April 23, 2018, BC saw a coordinated same-day rally in Vancouver and Victoria where Christian supremacist group Culture Guard, the Hells Angels, and White supremacist group Soldiers of Odin converged as a socially-conservative show of force pressing for the removal of the existing SOGI component of the BC education curriculum, put in place in recent years to help increase the inclusion of the LGBTQ2+ community.
Join Morgane Oger at the Vancouver home of social entrepreneurs Dana and Joel Solomon for an intimate evening as she discusses the rise of intolerance and social conservative sentiment in Canada, the necessary limits on hateful speech that our laws provide, and how the Morgane Oger Foundation is standing up to help protect the rights of everyone against those who would impose their bias on others.
