Allan Rock, formerly a Liberal cabinet minister, currently the president of the university which unceremoniously cast the blasphemer Coulter off its p.c. premises, is trying to do damage control. Rock claims that, appearances to the contrary, his institution is not brownshirty and censorious. In fact, "We have a long history of hosting contentious and controversial speakers on our campus."
Really? I tried to track down some of the controversial and contentious ones, but all I could find were the usual "diversity"-mongers and the president of the Canadian Wood Council. No doubt they had lots of contentious and controversial things to say, and no doubt plenty of other "firebrands" have appeared on campus, too. I highly doubt, though, that they tacked right of centre a la Coulter, because it would have set off a firestorm with the hyper-sensitive IAE/inclusiveness crowd, and we would certainly have heard about it before.
