Silly Little Country - You Wondered

... how this blog was named.  This is utterly astonishing and nonsensical.

And even more amazing is the reported position of the University!

For its part, the University of Windsor agreed the tribunal has the power to remove or appoint its dean of law, but it argued that an order to stop the search or appoint Prof. Carasco "would be an onerous intervention into the university's governance" and would negatively affect faculty and students, and discourage stable funding from donors.
So what is the purpose of the search committees and their processes?  Why not just ask Barbara Hall to pick the province's University deans?

This is stupid beyond any reason.

(I grant you the University of Windsor does not have much repute, but surely even it would stand up against simple shakedowns like this.)

Every country has good and bad things about it and really, we're a silly little species when all is said and done.

Still, this Canadian story really does pilfer the confectionery.

I certainly agree about the universality of national silliness, and also that this particular manifestation has a particularly depressinngly Canadian ring to it.
