Guelph chapter of Delta Upsilon suffers discrimination-From School

Sorry to jump into your forum but I thought you would have an interest in this story:
Re:
In movies and television, fraternities are portrayed as animal houses, where alcoholism, promiscuity and hazing are glamorized. Because of this inaccurate portrayal, groups such as the Guelph chapter of Delta Upsilon have suffered severe discrimination. During the homecoming game at the University of Guelph last year, members of the Guelph chapter of Delta Upsilon were forced to leave by campus police for having displayed a banner which read “Building Better Men,” which was intended to aid in their recruitment process.
The fraternity promotes positive characteristics, pledging to be scholars, athletes and gentlemen. The group is absolutely anti-hazing, and its principles, bylaws and ceremonies are public.....

Most Canadian colleges & unis don't recognize fraternities or sororities at all and refuse to let them use any sort of facilities. This isn't surprising in the least.
