Canadian court rules students have free speech rights on campus

Alberta’s Court of Appeal has ruled that the University of Alberta was wrong to ask a student group to provide $17,500 to cover security costs, in a decision that appears to extend free expression rights to university campuses. The court ruled that a student’s freedom of expression on a campus is protected by the Charter of Rights and Freedom. The court’s ruling is unprecedented in Canada.

Good. It was a blatant misuse of power by the University.
