Ford's new policy policing speech aims to create a safe space on campus for anti-abortion activists and alt-right speakers

In a move to appease his social conservative base, Ontario Premier Doug Ford has put forward new measures to police speech on university campuses.

Thursday afternoon, the Premier's Office issued a directive vowing to strip funding from universities that don't implement new regulations policing speech on campus, targeting both student unions and individual students with financial penalties and disciplinary action if they protest "offensive" speakers and groups on campus.
