(Newser) – A University of Ottawa administrator has some friendly advice for Ann Coulter, who has a speaking engagement there this week: Review Canada’s hate speech and defamation laws. “Promoting hatred against any identifiable group would not only be considered inappropriate, but could in fact lead to criminal charges,” he reminded her, asking her to “weigh your words with respect and civility in mind.”

The university is one of three Canadian schools where Coulter will speak this week, something that hasn’t gone over especially well with its students. The president of its student federation has banned posters promoting the event, and he tells the National Post he’s trying to push the speech off-campus.

I am definitely not a fan of Coulter by any stretch but this: "The president of its student federation has banned posters promoting the event, and he tells the National Post he’s trying to push the speech off-campus." disturbs me. Whether or not the students all agree with her or not, or if any of them agree with her at all, that is a huge violation against free speech on the student federation president's part. He should be ashamed of himself.
