Canadian Blacklisting

by Andrew Gillen

The Chronicle reports that the
Canadian Union of Public Employees in Ontario, the largest labor union representing staff members at the province’s universities, plans to introduce a resolution at its conference next month to ban Israeli academics from teaching, speaking, or doing research at Ontario universities if they do not first condemn Israeli actions in Gaza.

Hmmm. How does history view the last time academic freedom was suppressed and people were blacklisted if they held "the wrong" views?
