Laurier university employees Nathan Rambukkana and Adria Joel used their positions of power and authority to attempt to intimidate teaching assistant Lindsay Shepherd out of presenting both sides of the contemporary debate on mandated use of gender-neutral pronouns to students. Using their authority to coerce a student into presenting only one side (theirs) of a political debate is an horrendous abuse of power. It is a crime not only against Ms. Shepherd, but against her students, who Rambukana and Joel were attempting to indoctrinate into their ideology by presenting them with a biased, one-sided version of an important issue. This is unacceptable behaviour for employees of any institution of higher-learning, which are supposed to foster critical thinking from a position of neutrality, not filter the reality that their students are exposed to in order to further their personal political agendas. Nip this propagandistic bullying in the bud by demanding that Wilfrid Laurier fire these abusive commissars of the political correctness party.
