One Dried Up Old Fart
That is now the emblem of our RMC. (They could have H. Ballard there talking with B. Frum)

Does one need anything more to show that our military and police are now instruments of our New Canadian Government!

Don Cherry's honorary degree sparks protest

Some faculty members of the Royal Military College of Canada are protesting that hockey commentator Don Cherry is receiving an honorary degree from the school.

The school's senate voted to grant an honorary degree to Cherry for his work in supporting the Canadian Forces.

But the honour upset some members of the faculty. At a recent faculty board meeting, some members passed a motion expressing their dissatisfaction that Cherry will be a recipient of the degree.

As well, French professor Catherine Lord sent out a statement to local media criticizing the senate's decision, saying Cherry was not worthy of the honour because of statements he has made in the past..
