The Ryerson Student’s Union Thinks Sexual Violence is a Problem

Pro-lifers agree, and we’ve got some solutions

Ryerson University is located in the heart of downtown Toronto. Well regarded for its business and engineering faculties, the university is also home to the Ryerson Students’ Union (RSU).

Earlier this year, the RSU proclaimed that it “opposes…groups, meetings, or events that promote misogynist views towards woman (sic) and ideologies that promote gender inequity, challenges women’s right (sic) to bodily autonomy, or justifies (sic) sexual assault.”

Apparently it’s opposed to the rules of grammar, too.

What prompted this declaration? It was the RSU’s rationale for denying a pro-life group, Students for Life at Ryerson, official club status.

Group president Nicole Bryck has described receiving support from a pro-life organization after becoming pregnant at 19. And, as she and vice-president Carter Grant have explained, their members are hoping to do similar work on campus. Unfortunately, the RSU isn’t as enthused: on February 23, its board of directors voted unanimously not to grant the club recognition.
