Free Speech Muffled in Nova Scotia

CHESTER BASIN, N.S. — A Grade 12 student in Nova Scotia has been suspended for wearing a T-shirt publicizing his religious beliefs.

NS student suspended for wearing Jesus t-shirt

The 30 comments all seem to support this kid, which is good to know. School officials are going to look silly when this case becomes public. As one commenter said "If a student had a t-shirt with follow Muhammed on it would he/she be susppended? I doubt it as the School board would be afraid to take such action against a Muslim student."

A local businessman is going to print up 100 of these t-shirts so that other students can wear them to school to show their support for William Swinimer.
