Ottawa has two universities that market themselves with grand titles:
"Canada's Capital University" (aka Carleton U)
"Canada's university" (aka U of Ottawa)
Both can now reasonably be said to be run by ethically challenged individuals.
U of O Allan Rock's media title of being "ethically challenged" is well deserved and dates back (2003) to his fishing-vacation political days (that ended his political career...): LINK. (And list of ethical breaches.)
Now Carleton U's Roseann Runte is joining the ranks of ethically challenged university presidents in Ottawa, due to revelations in a stunning bribery and extortion legal battle unfolding in the United States: LINK. (The allegations have not been proved in court, but there is unambiguous testimony from a former dean.)
How do the governance boards of these universities choose these brave public servants? Do they use Google? Are the candidates interviewed about their pasts?
MEDIA UPDATE (May 11, 2011):
Guilty verdict in U.S. trial tied to Carleton U prez
(it appears somebody lied to the court...)
