Ryerson University removing ‘offensive’ White Students Union signs on campus

TORONTO — Ryerson University is reacting quickly to a group calling itself the “White Students Union,” with officials removing signs across campus and spreading the message that they are in no way connected to the university.

The group, which also calls itself the Students for Western Civilization, said on its website that it is based out of Toronto and is composed primarily of students and alumni of Toronto universities.

To organize for and advance the interests of Western peoples.
To promote and celebrate Western Civilisation.

As a public institution, TAMU would violate the First Amendment if it denied a public facility to a group “due to political ideology,” he said.

TAMU did it anyway.
