Here is a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation video report on news that Ann Coulter's speech at the University of Ottawa last night was canceled due to security concerns.
Coulter began her speaking tour in Canada in at the University of Western Ontario, and was classic Ann in responding to a sarcastic question from a female Muslim student. More than 2000 people turned out to attend Coulter's appearance in Ottawa, many of them rowdy protesters, resulting in the cancellation of her speech.
Coulter's tour in Canada is to conclude on Thursday at the University of Calgary.
It’s just the thing conservative author, commentator and self-described polemicist Ann Coulter is known for: Dividing her audiences.
Coulter was scheduled to speak before an audience gathered at the University of Ottawa’s Marion Hall Tuesday evening.
Instead, security concerns raised by the university kept the Republican firebrand from speaking.
Organizers pulled the plug on the speaking engagement because there were just too many people — too many of whom were just too rowdy.
“At a university, instead of free speech, censorship,” said Ezra Levant, a Canadian conservative writer, lawyer and blogger who was scheduled to introduce Coulter.
Coulter was at the university for the second stop of her Canadian speaking tour to dish on political correctness, media bias and freedom of speech.
Police were called by the university to assist after students of all political stripes descended upon the auditorium to hear the talk — some of them lining up for more than two hours in the rain — only for it to be cancelled a half-hour after it was due to begin. . . MORE
