Acadia University, do NOT fire Rick Mheta

Rick Mheta's activism for free speech has resulted in him being targeted by people who wish to remove him from his teaching position. While Rick Mheta may state views that are unpopular as a teacher he is admired by his students for making his classes informative and enjoyable. Furthermore, Rick Mheta merely takes the position that all views, even highly unpopular ones ought to be allowed as it allows people to see the whole picture and allows people to more easily reach the best possible conclusion. He merely holds the view that no individual or group should go unquestioned and would willingly defend the rights of even his opponents to express their views publicly.

This attempt to silence a professor merely because they say that even unpopular views should be open for discussion on a public university campus is a threat to any belief system or idea being shut down for the sole reason that it is not popular.

We therefore urge Acadia University to retain Rick Mheta in his teaching role at Acadia University and in any other role he may have on campus.
