Expel Tyler L. Russell Immediately

Tyler L. Russell openly promotes anti-Black, anti-Indigenous, anti-immigrant and misogynistic messaging on his website and social media. I want to express concern regarding this in a petition that I started to support his expulsion as a result of the hate speech that is shared on his Twitter account. As an immigrant to Canada and a woman of colour, I personally find this hate speech detrimental to my personal feelings of safety and wellness on campus. This same sentiment is shared by many whom I have spoken with personally.

I want to be clear- I don't wish to take away his right to free speech (even if it's hate speech), however the faculty, staff and students at Ryerson need to know that anti-Black, anti-Indigenous, anti-immigrant, misogynistic sentiments will not be tolerated at our university. As a representative of the institution, I would expect that he is held to these standards.
