Fathers’ rights activist offered settlement for wrongful expulsion

Mark Bogan was a student at Aurora College in Yellowknife, NWT when he was expelled as a result of his strongly expressed opinions on the parental rights of fathers in family custody courts.  After his expulsion nearly 3 years ago, Bogan filed a complaint against Aurora with the NWT Human Rights Commission and has recently received an offer for a $12,000 cash settlement and acknowledgement of wrongful expulsion from the college with the opportunity to reapply to the Social Work program.  Despite a confidentially clause in the settlement offer, Bogan has decided to keep the public informed of his efforts to protect his right to free speech, not surprising considering his history of public protest.  As a result, his case will likely not be settled and will go to trial.  Find the story here.
