  3. I’m stunned. I don’t know what to say. I encounter these PC radicals almost daily at the University of Victoria, but never, never would they get away with this here. My school has its problems, but today I’m proud to say this despicable, bigotted nonsense would never, ever fly at UVic….. (fingers crossed).

  10. I attend Carleton and can vouch that students at Carleton should not be held to held to any high standard … but this would have been down right laughable if it were not so stupid. At the moment, I haven’t heard anything about this from Carleton other than a e-mail going out saying that the Shinerama program has been cancelled, and langauge used in the motion was suspect.
