McGill’s Choose Life had their club status indefinitely revoked yesterday by the SSMU.
The motion, which passed by a vote of 16-7, stipulated that the “Student Equity Committee work with Choose Life to draft a document for Choose Life on how to abide by SSMU’s Constitution, By-laws, and Policies, which will be adopted by Choose Life.”
Maybe it will be a behavioral chart that will work on a smiley face basis. Perhaps double-smiley face stickers will be awarded when Choose Life quietly heeds to the temper tantrums of those who believe freedom of speech comes with strings attached.
They would be good to remember: “We must bring ourselves to realize that it is necessary to support free speech for the things we hate in order to ensure it for the things in which we believe with all our heart.” — Heywood Campbell Brounby
