As reported yesterday by the Canadian Press (CP) via Huffington Post Canada, the editor-in-chief of a Canadian campus publication, The Baron, has been fired over publishing content featuring a white nationalist. According to CP:
The editor-in-chief of a student newspaper at the University of New Brunswick’s Saint John campus is out after publishing an op-ed and interview with the head of a group that had taken responsibility for posting what were described as racist posters on campus.
Anna De Luca had defended the publication of the articles in The Baron by saying the newspaper believes in unfettered freedom of speech and expression.
