Student Sues University for $3.6 Million After It Targeted Her for Showing Jordan Peterson TV Clip on Using Pronouns

James Risdon reports at LifeSiteNews.com:

It's quiet at the Rainbow Centre at Wilfrid Laurier University.

Closed for the summer, no one answers the phones. Toby Finlay, the former administrator for that LGBTQ "safe space" on campus, is no longer there. He has graduated and moved on. Or so claims a representative of the Rainbow Centre in a Facebook message.

The stir sparked by that LGBTQ association at Wilfrid Laurier University last year, though, is still here.

And it's now grown into a $3.6-million lawsuit against the university and some of its staff by former teaching assistant Lindsay Shepherd.

"She is taking on the university, associate professors of communication studies Drs. Herbert Pimlott and Nathan Rambukkana, and also Adria Joel, then the university's acting director of Diversity and Equity Prevention," LifeSiteNews continues.  

"In a statement of claim filed in Ontario's Superior Court last week, Shepherd alleges she has suffered attacks which have left her 'unemployable in academia' and have forced her to abandon her doctoral studies or even teach at a university as a master's graduate," LifeSiteNews reports.

"Shepherd has suffered nervous shock as a result of the conduct of the defendants which was the foreseeable and intended result. In the alternative, it was the reasonably foreseeable outcome of their conduct and the defendants were negligent in their treatment of her," the statement of claim asserts, according to LifeSite.

"It all started with a complaint filed by university's Rainbow Centre staff in November last year after Shepherd showed a clip of a TV Ontario show featuring a discussion about pronoun usage in Canada. Shepherd's class was then studying pronouns," LifeSiteNews reports.
