A Canadian college may prohibit pro-life students from holding some anti-abortion protests in the future after it says one demonstration created "an unsafe environment."

The pivotal incident at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo involved a display of 10,000 pink and blue flags, The College Fix reports.

The flags, erected in the campus quad by the student LifeLink group last fall, were said to represent the 100,000 abortions annually performed in Canada.

Campus spokesman Kevin Crowley told The College Fix while the university "firmly upholds" free speech, it must "support individuals who may have experienced harm related to a specific topic being discussed."

And in a letter distributed on campus after the display, Student Union President Tyler Van Herzele said, "The visceral nature of the display interfered with the ability of some members of the Laurier community to safely attend class, travel to work or remain on campus to study.

"The adversarial tone of the event evoked a confrontation which eliminated the possibility of respectful dialogue and created an unsafe environment for all students."
