UTFA supports Dale Askey and the academic freedom of librarians

The University of Toronto Faculty Association has made a public statement of support for Dale Askey. Only one of the two lawsuits launched against Dale Askey has been dropped. The announcement last Monday by CBC referred to only the lawsuit against both parties, Dale Askey and McMaster University. The lawsuit launched by Herbert Richardson (founder and editor of Edwin Mellen Press) against Dale Askey is still pending. Both libel cases are part of the same strategy to silence and intimidate librarians.UTFA Public Letter of Support
