David Suzuki’s Degree


Earlier this month, the University of Alberta (U of A) announced that it was bestowing an honorary degree upon David Suzuki. He who has always been the face of nature – at least here in Canada – and it, the U of A, being firmly in the province currently under fire as being a major contributor to the Machine of Global Warming ™ and Climate Change.

Inevitably, all walks are now rattling their battle armour. The Beatles’ Order of the British Empire takes on a new face in 2018. (An internet search “controversy honorary alberta suzuki” will provide ample material)

Agenda, apathy, arrogance – it all casts a pall over modernity and the human condition.

We should be proud of the University’s response.
