Is NSCAD turning into a Dalousy?
The firing of hugely popular President Aoife Mac Namara by the Board indicates some serious conflicts of interest lurking among members of the Board. The most baffling aspect of the saga is, considering the culture of corruption in Nova Scotia Academia, how did such a brilliant person become President in the first place? Take the example of Dalhousie. Members of faculty who exceed expectations do not get to be President. This post is reserved exclusively for Cabal families, and sometimes, their ethically challenged sockpuppets. And thus, firing them becomes unnecessary. Coincidentally, the law firm being fingered in the NSCAD issue also has partners in the Dalhousie Board. Coincidentally, I had approached one such partner with my issues a long time ago (he declined and later went on to join the Dalhousie Board).
