If the previous post was too cryptic,
then, to be more plain: take a gander at this front page story in today’s T-J: “UNB faculty, staff protest honorary degree for premier,”Matt McCann, Telegraph-Journal (May 12/09, A1). And, as ever, be sure to read the comments. Favourite so far:
This is a very disappointing decision by the University. This man does not deserve this type of honorable recognition. Let’s wait another twenty years to see the outcome of his decision and management of this province.
What has he done to better our lives? So far nothing, except blow a lot of hot air.
Thus action shows serious disrespect for the great contributors that you have recognized already.
UNB we are all seriously disappointed in you. Stop cheapening your institution.
