Internal university communications newly obtained by PressProgress contradict explanations offered by the University of British Columbia's leadership for why it decided to give a green light to an "alt-right" event on campus.

Last summer, UBC allowed a far-right speaker to host an event on campus attacking transgender rights and the province's SOGI 123 education initiative for protecting LGBTQ students.

Jenn Smith, the event organizer, has no academic ties to UBC and reportedly used members of the Soldiers of Odin hate group as bodyguards at previous events in BC.
