UBC is going ahead with an event by a controversial anti-SOGI speaker, despite anger from students who are calling for it to be cancelled.

Jenn Smith, who identifies as transgender but says he is not a woman, is critical of B.C.'s LGBTQ-inclusive education resource SOGI 123 and what he calls "transgender ideology" and "transgender politics."

Despite both Trinity Western University and Douglas College cancelling Smith's talk titled "The Erosion of Freedom," UBC Provost Andrew Szeri says that's not going to happen.
