Canadian post-secondary institutions that bar racist, anti-LGBTQ or other speakers from their campuses could see their research grants slashed under a Conservative government.

That's according to the Conservative Party of Canada's official platform, which launched Friday and contains a pledge to "promote free speech on campus."

Under a Conservative government, post-secondary institutions will have to have "an expressed commitment to free speech and academic freedom" in order to receive federal research support grants, such as those from the Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRCC) or the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERCC).
