  Blatchford, NP:    Widdowson is also the co-author (with Albert Howard) of Disrobing the Aboriginal Industry: The Deception Behind Indigenous Cultural Preservation, the 2008 book which argued that indigenous deprivation is maintained by a de facto industry of lawyers and consultants.
   At Wilfrid Laurier Univerity, she was to discuss the question, “Does University Indigenization Threaten Open Inquiry?”
   But Wednesday, the LSOI sponsoring faculty member, economics prof Will McNally, was told two things within three minutes — first that Laurier’s new booking policy is to charge “all additional costs” to the sponsoring club or faculty member and second, that the Widdowson event would require “a fee of $5,473” for security.
  As Haskell put it, “The policy is clearly prejudicial to clubs, faculty and associations that want to bring right-leaning speakers on campus. Now there’s a fee, but it’s not a fee left-leaning groups will ever pay.”
