Coulter Care

24Mar10

Ann Coulter, scheduled to speak in Canada, creates a furor.

After protesters at the University of Ottawa prevented Ann Coulter from giving a speech Tuesday night, the American conservative writer said it proved the point she came to make — free speech in Canada leaves much to be desired.

“The University of Ottawa is really easy to get into, isn’t it?” she said in an interview after the cancelled event. “I never get any trouble at the Ivy League schools. It’s always the bush league schools.”

“Since I’ve arrived in Canada, I’ve been denounced on the floor of Parliament — which, by the way, is on my bucket list — my posters have been banned, I’ve been accused of committing a crime in a speech that I have not yet given, I was banned by the student council, so welcome to Canada!”

The “accusation” of which Coulter speaks is a reference to an e-mail she received from University of Ottawa vice-president and provost Francois Houle on Friday, warning her that freedom of speech is defined differently in Canada than in the U.S. and that she should take care not to step over the line.

    Todd,

    I love Ann. But two things: (1) lose the long hair, Mary Travers look and (2) what’s up with that skirt she’s wearing?

    Keep up the good work. The Tod and Tom show (notice you have first billing ) has real good energy that along with my extra strong coffee gets me going in the morning!
