One of the research paper topics that students from Communication Studies 101 at Wilfrid Laurier University can choose to write about this semester is communication bubbles. Communication bubbles refer to the phenomenon of people becoming entrapped in ideological echo chambers as a result of only seeking out, or being fed, news that confirms their existing beliefs.
Lindsey Shepard is a Teaching Assistant for Communication Studies 101 at Wilfrid Laurier University, on November 1 she showed a portion of TVO’s “The Agenda” to her class. Jordan Peterson, a psychology professor at university of Toronto, was in the video arguing against being forced to use gender neutral pronouns.
On November 8, Shepherd was called into a meeting with two professors — Nathan Rambukkana and Herbert Pimlott — and a diversity and equity official with the university, Adria Joel, after a complaint was allegedly made about her tutorial. Shepherd recorded the meeting, where she was reprimanded for showing the video. Ramukkana said that it was impossible to neutrally present a position on gender pronouns; "This is like neutrally playing a speech by Hitler".
In a letter dated December 4, and sent to Shepherd's lawyer Howard Levitt, from the Laurier-hired lawyer Robert Centa, reads: "You asked for a copy of the complaint or complaints filed against your client. At this point in my investigation, I do not believe there is a document that contains a 'complaint' made about Ms. Shepherd nor is there anything I would describe as a formal complaint under any WLU policy," wrote Centa
After a recording of Shepherd's meeting was made public, both Laurier President Deborah MacLatchy and Rambukkana issued a public apology to her.
MacLatchy’s statement read “The conversation I heard does not reflect the values and practices to which Laurier aspires … I am sorry it occurred in the way that it did and I regret the impact it had on Lindsay Shepherd.”
Rambukkana also apologized for meeting with Shepherd in the company of two other colleagues, responding to criticism that such a set-up demonstrated a power imbalance.
Shepard, who sees herself as left wing, had thought about a career in academia but in an email to The Record she wrote "if this trend continues of radical leftist indoctrination, I'm not really interested in being a part of that,"

Hey Andrew,A little behind on episodes. Listening to LODP 88-3 where you were a guest on there. Loving the crossover episodes between two of the three podcasts I actually listen to! Yup, sks will work for a truck gun. But before you do, consider the Troy PAR national in .223. Holding your laughter, consider this. They are about 1000 used on CGN. Awesome quality barrels, and takes AR mags. CTCS has nice polymer 10 rounders. Light, reliable, quality builds. Ergonomics you are very familiar with. Folds down to minimum legal length. Far more accurate than the ‘ minute of man’ of the sks. Faster reloads and a much easier carry if you have to walk it home. Just a thought.Jonesy
iTunes 5 Stars
