Despite opposition from left-wing activists, the media and the mayor of Toronto, Toronto’s head librarian is not budging on her support for free speech.
Activists have been trying to shut down a speech by feminist Meghan Murphy for Murphy’s belief that people with penises aren’t women. Murphy was previously banned from giving a talk in rented space at a Vancouver library, but it looks so far like her event in Toronto will be going ahead.
True North’s Andrew Lawton says the library should be commended for taking this stand.
We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.
Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.
How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.
This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
