Byram Bridle, a tenured professor at the University of Guelph’s Ontario Veterinary College, has launched a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the university, a number of faculty and other individuals.

On Dec. 19, Bridle launched the lawsuit with the Ontario Superior Court of Justice seeking a total of $3 million, according to court documents obtained by CTV News Kitchener.

Bridle has been outspoken against COVID-19 vaccine mandates, including the one implemented at the U of G in 2021. An open letter from Bridle to the U of G said he could not be in stronger disagreement with the university “forcing” the COVID-19 vaccine on the campus community.

The court documents show Bridle is suing for general damages in the amount of $500,000, punitive damages in the amount of $500,000, aggravated damages in the amount of $500,000 and restitution damages of $1.5 million with respect to lab equipment, loss of grant and research funding.
