A free speech wall at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, was taken down on Tuesday, April 2. Put up by Queen’s Students for Liberty, the University had campus security remove the wall, alleging hateful speech and racial slurs had been written on it.

This is not the first time that a free speech wall has been taken down on a university campus this year. A student tore down a free speech wall that Carleton Students for Liberty set up at Carleton University in January.
