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!
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.)
