Last week at York University, a group of students confronted the Canadian Armed Forces (there to recruit students for jobs), driving them off campus. Meanwhile, the University of Guelph’s student council, the Central Student Association, is drafting a policy that would ban military recruiters from campus, as well as oppose any research done on campus that would benefit military organizations.
“We don’t think a university campus is the right venue for the military to be recruiting,” said CSA communications commissioner Hannah Draper. “We have a code of conduct around suppliers and which employers and recruiters we want on campus.”

Unverities are public institution, heavily subsidized by tax dollars. When we decide, through the appropriate channels, that the armed forces are not welcome at universities, we will let it be known.
Until then there is no issue to concern ourselves with.

Is he implying that the army should only recruit "stupid uneducated lower class people?"
