Letter to the Fulcrum
The University of Ottawa

Hi Rob (Mr. Fishbook),

I'm responding to your article "Discourse restricted"
in the 
January 6-12 2005 edition of the Fulcrum.


My concern is that "political discourse" is NOT! ALLOWED
**AT ALL** in the Agora: this "blatantly" contravenes Section 
3 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

As the President/Party Leader of the Égalité Party of
Canada,
strongly believe college+university campuses
are great places 
for political parties - such as mine -
to get started.

Incidentally, I called the Head of the Political Science
Depart-
ment at Ottawa U. to see if she would have the plat
form of my 
Party critiqued. She NOT! only refused to return
my call, but 
Ottawa U. put a "call block" on my phone number.


Talk about RESTRICTING! political discourse.

What are they "afraid" of? 

New,"fresh" ideas.

They obviously have a stake in believing in the "same-old,
same-old" (FASCIST! POLICE STATE status quo).


I received the "same" NEGATIVE RESPONSE from Carle-
ton U. political science faculty as well as
that of the Université 
de Québec (on the other side of the Ottawa River) alleging that 
by having my political party platform critiqued by their students 
they'd be promoting my political party.


What are they afraid of?

BIG BROTHER?

THE QUESTION is this: WHY! is the University "restricting" public 
discourse?


The Government must have made it clear to them that it will NOT!
tolerate ANY! NEW POLITICAL PARTY with fresh ideas that will
upset the apple cart. 


That is such A DANGEROUS, TOTALITARIAN RESPONSE to 
the freedom of speech that it's CHILLINGLY OFFENSIVE.


OPEN, PUBLIC DISCOURSE IS VITAL TO DEMOCRACY+
FREEDOM: without it, there can only by TYRANNY!

The whole thing reminds me of when I was delivering my Masters 
presentation on curriculum design at Carleton U.
in November 
1996 when my lingistics professor, Dr. Janice Yalden,
former 
Faculty of Arts Dean and former Head of the Depart
ment of 
Linguistics at Carleton University, got up
midway through my 
presentation+asked me to sit down because I was
disagreeing 
with the last 20 years of linguistic thought
regarding multilingual-
ism when everything I was saying
was substantiated by the latest 
avant-guard linguistic research FROM OUTSIDE! NORTH AME-
RICA  and I, myself,
had already studied nearly a dozen languages 
at University earning TOP! MARKS making me an authority on the
subject.


Needless to say, I walked out of the program IN TOTAL! DISGUST,

Her response was an UNCONTROLLED! FASCIST! RESPONSE
that made me SICK! because it was UNWARRANTED+TOTALLY
DIGRACEFUL in a public institution of HIGHER LEARNING.

The moral of the story is that universities CAN+*DO* "restrict" dis-
course and they do so "actively": IT'S FASCIST! MIND CONTROL.

PLUS! Ottawa U. campus Police warned me that they'd charge me
with "trespassing on PRIVATE! PROPERTY" if I came on campus 
and promoted my political party on the streets around the campus+
the Ottawa Police confirmed that they would lay the charges as they 
have done so in the past.

When I asked the campus Police for PROOF! that Ottawa U. in fact
was private property they couldN'T! produce any.

It turns out that ALL! the universities+colleges are PRIVATE IN-
STITUTIONS that are PUBLICLY FUNDED when NO ONE seems 
to
know who owns them

That's NOT! baffling?

The Attorney General's Office who's responsible for the laying of 
Police charges did NOT! know NOR! the Minitry of Education.


The É(eh)PC intends to solve this problem by nationalizing colleges
+universities.

(See http://eh-ok.ca/egalite.htm#nationalization.)

PLUS! the É(eh)PC will make sure that DISCOURSE at Canada's
institutions of higher learning is NOT! RESTRICTED.
