they should have let ann coulter speak

the only way to expose her ilk is top let them spout their crap so folks can judge her rhetoric for themselves

plus the harder she works the better the chance the skinny bitch might drop dead from exhaustion Wink

They should simply insist that half of her speech be in French.

@djjd62,
She should have agreed to let anyone in. Having her security vet the audience in advance meant that there would have been no opportunity for people who weren't already fans to "judge her rhetoric for themselves".

She messed up a couple of nights earlier. I hope she has to repay the organizers.

So what sort of a "public meeting" was this? Confused

@djjd62,
Coulter did it to herself when she released the letter warning her that certain hate speech could be a violation of Canadian law.

They should have let her speak and then arrested her.

@msolga,
Just curious: what was the subject of her speech?

@djjd62,
So why would audience vetting be necessary for that?

@parados,
i've never been happy with my countries speech laws

when howard stern was being broadcast in toronto they used to dump out of his conversations with daniel carver of the kkk, i always felt this was wrong, the best way to expose these nuts is to let them speak

Allow me to provide some missing context:

Organizers pulled the plug on the speaking engagement because there were just too many people " too many of whom were just too rowdy.

Canadian conservative political commentator Ezra Levant, the other speaker travelling with Coulter on the three-city tour, presented by the International Free Press Society of Canada, told the half-filled hall that no more people would be able to enter and that Coulter had been advised it would not be safe for her to appear. Coulter's bodyguard ultimately made the judgment, after conferring with security staff on site.

From what I can gather, therefore, it appears that the speech was cancelled by Coulter's people, not by the university, although university security may have advised Coulter that it was unsafe for her to proceed with her planned speech.

@djjd62,
But the other side of the equation is that people who might disagree be allowed to hear them speak, surely?

What is achieved by speaking only to people who believe the very same things?

She's a big girl . . . she ought to be able to defend her own big mouth.

It sounds a lot like George Bush's staged speeches--speak only to carefully selected audiences who agree with you and keep everybody who disagrees far, far away and cordoned off and out of the hall. That's kind of a strange definition of "freedom of speech"

what this event shows is how restricted free speech has become in Canada. Canadians love to pat themselves on the back about how they are partly European, but in this case that is a bad thing. We in America have our own problems with those who wish to do away with free speech, but we can console ourselves with the fact that we are not as bad as Canada....or Europe....and of course the worst of all before China-Australia.
