An interesting aspect to this is not just the courage it takes to stand up, but also the demonstration of the power one man who refuses to bow down can wield. And on top of that, Peterson is extraordinarily respectful of his position and humble about it. He's made a powerful and positive impact on the debate.
Of course, because he is truthful and effective, the left is trying to discredit him, call him a hatemonger, a homophobe, a misogynist, a fascist, a right-winger (he's actually a bit left of center personally), a racist, and anything else they can think of to try and destroy him. After hearing dozens of speeches by him, on YouTube and in other venues, I can confidently declare that those charges are utterly baseless, and are in fact pernicious lies. In the video above that Enright/Bontrager posted, he clearly defines what the lines are between rational, decent thinking (right or left) and how to identify the extremists on either side of the debate who are clearly out of bounds.
