On the morning of January 3rd, Jordan Peterson tweeted that “the Ontario College of Psychologists has demanded that I submit myself to mandatory social-media communication retraining with their experts for, among other crimes, retweeting Pierre Poilievre and criticizing Justin Trudeau and his political allies.”

Allegedly, the Ontario College of Psychologists wants him “to take a course of such training (with reports documenting my “progress” or face an in-person tribunal and suspension of my right to operate as a licensed clinical psychologist.”

Apparently, “a dozen people from all over the world submitted complaints about my public statements on Twitter” and what he stated onJoe Rogan’s podcast for the last four years.

He says that the college knows that these individuals lied about being clients of Peterson’s, but pursued the investigationregardless. 

Peterson believes that the college is taking issues with him “Criticizing climate change models. Objecting to surgery on gender dysphoric minors. Warning Canadians it was wrong for social service workers and police to threaten to apprehend the children of the Trucker Convoy protestors.”

Peterson says he will “provide all the details legally allowed to me.”
