            from the article: "A protest organizer, international studies student Mike Fancie, said he was pleased they were able to stop Coulter from speaking."

            a University student "proud" that they silenced someone?

              You should really make the move to Canada and hope the country doesn't decide in the near future that your view is the minority view. 

              "We want Ann" was chanted again and again by many students, and I can't imagine why that isn't readily available for you to find in a quick news article from the student population.  But then the liberals do their best to control the media here, and you are a fine example of the skewed perspective and perverted politics that are taking hold in the US today.

      From the article, it sounds like a publicity stunt from the conservative organizers themselves.  There's no mention of actual threats, and the spokesman for the "liberal" protesters doesn't sound violent at all, just mentions Ann's own hate speech.  It would seem the organizers cancelled the speech based on an imagined threat to make the protesters look bad.

      Well, for a start, those who protested do not represent ALL Canadians. Secondly, I understand there were concerns for Ms Coulter's safety... by that I do not mean that she was ACTUALLY in danger, but that the university probably did not want to take any risks looking like they had egg on their faces. Either way, I highly doubt she was in danger. I know that university well, and I am sure she was not in any actual danger.

                  Listen, Canada has only two national newspapers and one of them is a conservative paper. Conservatives gives speeches all the time... it shouldn't be rocket science: when you form the government you get to speak a lot in public (isn't that how it works in your country?).

                  As for Ann Coulter, as I have already said, there can't be too many Canadians who do not know who she is, and where she stands, and those who don't certainly know Mr. O'Reilly, so I think her ass is covered.

                    No, I don't presume you are a liberal, but the circular statement you made is reflective of liberal style thinking in this country, in my opinion.  So my apologies if you were offended.

                    While Canada has a conservative party, the most effective Canadian speaker I saw this afternoon on FOX, some woman with her own news program of some kind, was adamant and clear that Canada does not have American free speech, and she was thrilled that Coulter was run off, and she presented a very liberal point of view of the policy and politics of Canada.  It was actually very disturbing, as I've never thought of Canada as a country that was intolerant.

              A Canadian Conservative (these days) is MUCH MUCH closer to an American Conservative than to a British Conservative NOW, even if this wasn't true twenty years ago. You need to catch up. Canada's Conservative leader has always openly been allied with the US Repuhlican Party. This was not true in the past, but Canada's conservative movement has undergone a radical overhaul in the last two decades.

              The idea that Canadian freedom of speech is more restrictive than American, again, needs to be substantiated. You can simply state that if you want, but it is at best a dubious claim. If you want it to be taken seriously, therefore, you need to back it up.

              As for the incident in question, Coulter was NOT FORBIDDEN TO SPEAK, SHE WAS BOOOKED TO SPEAK!!! Should they have let a riot ensue if that is what they thought was going to happen?

                American conservatives are a far cry from canadian and british conservatives. You keep saying the republican party. There is a difference between a republican and a conservative. you do know that right?

                Thats alright bro, you will understand one day.

                Well when you get through reviewing the canadian laws in regards to hate speech and other forms of speech, and then the american law, get back to me.

                But I can assure you, canadian laws in regards to speech are restrictive when compared to american free speech laws.

                    Ha. Indeed, AMERICANS are frequently denied free speech. Perhaps not denied it, but villified for giving an opinion in public.. Anyone heard of the Dixie Chicks?

                    What would you like me to tell you. I would also defend his right to speak here. So.... ?

    I don't really appreciate any of you guys depicting women in such a degrading manner!

      Actually in this case, Nancy was doing the degrading.

    It was one university in Canada that canceled her speech, not the entire country. Personally, I wish they would have let her speak, the more she speaks, the more ridiculous and bigoted she sounds.

      I agree that she should have been permitted to speak, because frankly I think all sides should get an airing. Clearly the University of Ottawa thought so too, or they wouldn't have booked her. I am EXTREMELY doubtful that she was cancelled because of her opinions, but that it was a decision by university security.

        But that isn't as controversial for her to whine about and play the martyr.

    Have you noticed that creepy starts these posts and disappears when things get too heated?

    I didn't catch which university yet, but Coulter is giving a speech there tonight. They moved it to a larger venue and have hired more security. I don't know how universities should be expected to pay for this when they are threatening to raise tuition fees all the time. I'm sure she got a hefty fee. And I'm sure that even though the speech in Ottawa was cancelled, Coulter got paid.

    Canada is a tolerant country; just because you hear a conservative woman speaking on Fox does not mean she knows what she is talking about.

    I was shocked to learn that Canada has a hate speech law that could put someone in jail for simply saying "All Muslims should be on the no-fly list".
    I was also surprised at the Canadian students intolerance of Ann Coulter. You call yourselves a "free" country? You think you're a tolerant people? It seems to me you're a bunch of hypocrites!
