BC's Permanent Tax On Everything apparently doesn't pay for universities

I was wondering what’s up with Gordon Campbell’s really weird management of the higher-education file, which is turning into a bit of a spiralling helldive of disaster, when it occurred to me to consult Maclean’s on campus. Sure enough, no surprise, Erin Millar has the news, and it’s seriously not good.

I don’t want to write Campbell off just yet. He has commissioned a glossy report in hopes of making BC the best-educated place in North America. But so far, he seems to be taking the long way around to it.

Looking for more?
