Cuts and an inconsequential conversation- McGill Tribune Column

(In which I look at a set of twin cuts; one to the provincial education budget, and one to McGill’s class catalog)

“At the beginning of last term, I wrote that this year would—hopefully—be free of the sort of acrimonious student politics that characterized 2011-2012 at McGill. Recent events have put the lie to that hope. While much of the attention on campus is currently centered around The Daily’s fee referendum, a more important set of controversies goes directly to what sort of education we will have as this university moves forward.”

The piece triggered yet another angry letter to the paper from a campus columnist who does not need to be named in this forum. However, you can read what he had to say here: http://mcgilltribune.com/re-cuts-and-an-inconsequential-conversation-jan-29/

The further controversy the piece triggered led to an interview with TVMcGill, which you can see in the second portion of this video: http://www.tvmcgill.com/2013/03/29/tvm-reads-the-paper/
