From time to time, organizations from the university or the wider community may choose to exercise their right of free speech and locate demonstrations at UBC.
UBC does not endorse the views expressed by any particular demonstration. Nor does the university ban legal demonstrations. The university values the free, lawful and respectful expression of all views and opinions, even those that some may find disagreeable or upsetting.
Demonstrations and other forms of expression are upheld by the statement on academic freedom from the UBC Okanagan Senate, and by UBC's support of free speech more generally.
The Kelowna Right to Life Society will hold demonstrations in the central courtyard adjacent to the flags and the Arts building from 8 to 11 a.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday, March 26 and 27, 2019.
Students experiencing any form of distress are encouraged to contact the Health and Wellness office for free, confidential counselling support. Call 250-807-9270, visit University Centre UNC 337, or email email@example.com to connect with a counsellor.
