February XXIXth, MMXVI
Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder
On a stroll this morning with Congressman Peter Roskam of Illinois, we ask Pete to take a "leap of faith" on this day since it only occurs once every IV years. Executive Dissertations wants to know what Pete is doing in the area of raising the awareness of the importance of freedom of speech for students on collegiate campuses.
"Freedom of expression is a critical underpinning of university teaching & research. Lately, we've noticed a disturbing trend of institutions stifling free speech & otherwise inhibiting a free exchange of ideas to shield their own viewpoints from criticism."
