U of S debacle – maybe it is a symptom of Conservative neglect, just like in Alberta.

A lot has been written about the anti-free speech moves by the U of S hierarchy and quite rightly so. But none of the reporters have bothered asking what drove university administrators to attack faculty and service providers in such an irresponsible manner.

That, in my opinion, has a lot to do with the government in Sask and their anti-intellectual crusade; something that the ex minister of education in Alberta, Tom Lukaszuk could relate too.

The Alberta PCs have been nothing but a bunch of vandals who actively seek to destroy tertiary education in Alberta in order to gain votes from the Alberta tea party (Wild Rose Alliance) and I would bet that Brad Wall (Harper’s mini-me) or one of his puppets was more involved in the fiasco at the U of S in much the same way, especially given his response

Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall used his Twitter account to congratulate Gordon Barnhart, who had been appointed interim president. Barnhart, a long-time academic, is the former lieutenant-governor of Saskatchewan.

The modern Conservative hates education and is seeking to reduce its horizon expanding influence by restricting it’s ability to educate. Education and knowledge is the enemy of the modern Conservative and it wouldn’t surprise me if the actions of the ass Wall precipitated the events at the U of S and he is pulling a Harper and hiding his responsibility. The modern Conservative is after all just a coward.
