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.

Lawyer Richard Dearden asks Supreme Court Registrar Roger Bilodeau to not accept motion to a judge

Regarding THIS recent motion to a judge filed to the Supreme Court of Canada by Rancourt in the St. Lewis v. Rancourt case, St. Lewis' lawyer Richard Dearden sent THIS February 14, 2013 letter to Supreme Court Registrar Roger Bilodeau.

In the letter, Mr. Dearden is asking Mr. Bilodeau to not accept a motion to the Court to have Mr. Bilodeau's own decision set aside.

Mr. Dearden is explaining to Mr. Bilodeau how the rules of the Court work, and how it is that Mr. Bilodeau should not accept a motion to a judge which would set aside Mr. Bilodeau's prior decision to not accept Rancourt's recent application for leave to appeal (without allowing the application to be considered and determined by the Court).

It would seem from Mr. Dearden's letter that Mr. Dearden is under the impression that Mr. Bilodeau is maybe not familiar with the rules of the Court or with the responsibilities of his own function?
