Jordan Peterson, a controversial psychologist, lost a legal battle in Ontario, and the court upheld a regulatory body’s decision to require him to take social media training or risk losing his license to operate.
Three justices from the Ontario Divisional Court reached a majority ruling on Wednesday in a case involving some of Peterson’s divisive language and online postings, siding with the College of Psychologists of Ontario.
The college’s request that Peterson enroll in a course on professionalism in public utterances, according to Justice Paul Schabas, was in line with the college’s duty to govern the industry and “is not disciplinary and does not prevent Dr. Peterson from expressing himself on controversial topics.”
The court dismissed Peterson’s claim that his remarks were made in his “off-duty opinions” rather than as a professional psychologist.
According to Schabas, “Dr. Peterson views himself as operating as a professional psychologist “in the wide public realm” where he claims to be assisting “millions of individuals.”
Peterson is unable to talk in his trusted capacity as a member of a regulated profession without also accepting responsibility for the risk of harm that results from doing so.
Peterson, a retired psychology professor from the University of Toronto, gained notoriety for his divisive YouTube videos criticizing liberal culture and his best-selling self-help book “12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos.”
Peterson stopped seeing patients in 2017, but since at least 2018, the organization that oversees psychologists in Ontario, of which he is a registered member and has been since 1999, has received complaints about Peterson’s online commentary on a variety of topics, from gender transition to climate change.
A plus-sized Sports Illustrated model, a transgender actor named Elliot Page, and posts directed at Canadian politicians were among the specific complaints detailed in the case before the divisional court.
When Peterson appeared on “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast in November of last year, the college’s complaints committee discovered that he “may be engaging in degrading, demeaning, and unprofessional comments” and claimed to be a clinical psychologist. He also seemed to belittle a former client. According to the college’s ethical code, members must speak respectfully and refrain from “unjust discrimination.”
The complaints committee came to the conclusion that Peterson’s remarks carried “moderate risks of harm to the public,” including “undermining public trust in the profession of psychology” and the college’s capacity to control the industry. The social media coaching program was subsequently mandated, at Peterson’s expense, with a clear warning that refusal to comply could lead to a claim of professional misconduct.
Peterson sought for a judicial review, claiming that the institution should not have the authority to regulate his political criticism and that the college had not properly balanced its mission with his right to free expression.
Free speech supporters and regulators in other fields closely followed the case. The Canadian Civil Liberties Association, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario, and the LGBTQ+ rights organization Egale Canada were among the interveners.
By requesting the remedial counseling, the college, according to Schabas, chose a legitimate course of action that preserved its professional standards while having no bearing on Peterson’s constitutional right to free expression.
