U of O Watch mission, in the words of Foucault...

"One knows … that the university and in a general way, all teaching systems, which appear simply to disseminate knowledge, are made to maintain a certain social class in power; and to exclude the instruments of power of another social class. … It seems to me that the real political task in a society such as ours is to criticise the workings of institutions, which appear to be both neutral and independent; to criticise and attack them in such a manner that the political violence which has always exercised itself obscurely through them will be unmasked, so that one can fight against them." -- Foucault, debating Chomsky, 1971.

Student Marc Kelly should obtain justice from U of O's Allan Rock administration

THIS neanderthal violation of natural rights perpetrated by the Allan Rock regime at the University of Ottawa will not stand.

Banned and trespassed physics-mathematics scholarship student and scientific author Marc Kelly had to mass-email his story to 67,000 members of the University of Ottawa community to be heard and the message got through...

More than 200 concerned students showed up today in the week before the final examination period to hear Marc Kelly talk in the Tabaret central administration building lobby, just underneath president Allan Rock's door.

Allan Rock was again conveniently out of town. Seems to be a habit (SEE LINK).

And the main Ottawa newspaper finally covered the story (HERE) of this longstanding Rock university executive malfeasance against student Marc Kelly.

This public exposure and the continued strong student union support should help the Rock administration to come to its senses, we hope?

Will the former Minister of Justice do the right thing?

Or at least explain what the hell is going on?

Rock is still out of town? Maybe he's looking for a new job??? If not, then maybe he should probably start doing so.

I received Mark's email in my inbox and looked up the issue. It led me to your blog. I was completing my B. Ed. while the controversy with your firing occurred. I always wondered what happened to you! You have a wonderful blog and thank you for your work and fight for what is right.

Mille mercis,
