“Apologies to everyone who was planning on attending”
This has become a common tactic for school administrations. Events they don’t like are shut down by outrageous security fees.

Student Group Cancels Event After 1,800% Hike In Security Cost
A student group cancelled an immigration talk after a Canadian university hiked the security cost by nearly 1,800 percent Wednesday, five days before the event’s April 30 date.
The University of Waterloo in Ontario raised security costs for the immigration talk from $1,600 to $28,500, reported The Record. The Laurier Society of Open Inquiry subsequently cancelled the event, which would have featured former The Rebel Media contributor Faith Goldy and University of New Brunswick professor Richard Duchesne, author of “Canada In Decay: Immigration. Diversity, and the Ethnocide of Euro-Canadians.”
“Apologies to everyone who was planning on attending, there is no way we can pay that,” the society’s president, Lindsay Shepherd, said. “We are going to cancel the event.”
Shepherd, a Wilfrid Laurier University graduate student, previously made headlines for getting scolded by her school after showing a debate featuring University of Toronto professor Jordan Peterson to a class she was teaching in 2017. Wilfrid Laurier assigned the Society of Open Inquiry “health and safety” requirements, causing the society to decide to relocate the event to Waterloo, where it would need to charge attendees $20 for admission.
