Do Canadians have the right to free speech? Well, psychologist Jordan Peterson doesn’t.
The College of Psychologists of Ontario launched a review of Peterson and concluded that he must be required to take social media training or else risk losing his license. He appealed this decision and the court decided against him.
Peterson does not see patients as a psychologist but has kept his license current. If he wants to remain licensed in Canada, he will have to submit to “specified continuing education or remedial program (a “SCERP”) regarding professionalism in public statements.”
What is it that they are trying to remediate? Peterson’s “wrong think” includes topics such as climate change, transhumanism, being critical of obesity and taking on politicians online. He will take classes from “social media experts” until they think he has learned his lesson if he wants to keep his license.
Peterson responded to this online on Friday. He says that he will go to their social media classes and tell us all what he learns. #following
