    I did, and I stand by.... "Yeah, right. .. " Just because he fixed it after being pegged, doesn't mean he wasn't in his usual hate government stance when he originally posted.

    This is what happens when you have a "PC" dept. within the school....

    Both of those comments are a large part of the reason I have very little respect for most colleges and universities.

    I just did a quick Google and I cannot find a Canadian one. Though shipping him off to the U.S. might be better.

    Good grief NO! We've got plenty of our own problem children.

    Btw, I couldn't find any specifics on which Canadian school are gender segregated, but I did find indications they exist.

    Number 37: Spring 2010
    Last October, more than 450 public school teachers, principals and central administrators from across the United States — as well as from Argentina, Bermuda, Canada and Poland — came together in Atlanta, Georgia, for the fifth annual convention of the National Association for Single Sex Public Education.

    All out universities allow women as it should be and post-secondary education should be partly funded by government in order to maintain standards and equal opportunity.

This decision instantly gained a lot of criticism from various critics including federal Justice Minister Peter McKay, calling it sexist and religious accommodation going too far. This has sparked debate about how far will religious accommodation go.

    I have to agree with the critics and the government, this is pure sexism and it has taken religious accommodation way too far. The York University staff should have just thrown the request back in the student's face and if he doesn't like it he doesn't have to go to university or preferably move to a country where that attitude is more tolerated. I would like to know what you think about this and if indeed religious accommodation has gone too far.

    This article is from the Globe and Mail and can be found here or any other Canadian news site for that matter.
    Oh what hate speech laws have wrought.
