In November, a man in a "Make America Great Again" hat walked around campus. Accompanied by a woman with a large camera, he challenged random passers-by to debate him on immigration, gay rights and the merits of a white ethnostate.

That man was Professor Ricardo Duchesne, a University of New Brunswick professor who is seen as a major part of the Canadian far-right.

He didn't fly across Canada to annoy pedestrians. He was invited by the Students for Freedom of Expression (SFE), then a newly-formed free speech group at UBC.
