This is what leads someone like Richard Spencer to voice approval for incidents like one at the University of Ottawa, when a free yoga class for students with disabilities was shut down for 'cultural issues of implication.' A Student Federation statement on the matter went as far as to link it to the threat of 'cultural genocide.'
