It's been a Bad Week for...
This guy must have the world's worst cold. Or maybe he has swine flu. It's probably safe to say Vic Toews thinks he IS a swine for revealing messy details of the Public Safety Minister's messy divorce through a series of 'Vikileaks.' Poor Carroll has been too sick to testify about the affair before the House of Commons ethics committee despite being invited twice. Is there not a doctor in the House?
Canadian Association of University Teachers
Two Christian universities in Manitoba have been red-flagged for hiring (gasp!) Christian professors. CAUT, after a lengthy investigation, red-flagged Canadian Mennonite University and Providence University College for only hiring professors who show an "understanding that Jesus Christ is sovereign." Congrats for exposing this, profs. But this is just the tip of the iceberg. Did you know there are thousands of churches who hire pastors based on their faith, too?
Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre
It's already endured a 10-per cent drop in subscribers this season. And now, it faces the prospect of bleeding more red ink. Its current play, God of Carnage was supposed to be a co-production with the Vancouver Playhouse Theatre. Only problem is, that theatre just died a gruesome death because of its own fiscal bleeding, leaving RMTC in the lurch. God of Carnage? How about season of carnage?
