Heather Mallick: David Gilmour "Has Badly Damaged the U of T's Reputation"

Such piffle. Israeli Apartheid Week, which got it's start there prior to metastasizing worldwide, has badly damaged it. The Gilmour brouhaha is a silly sideshow that damages that august institution's reputation not a whit.

Update: It's hardly a shockeroo that the union representing Canada's university profs supports the wrong side in the Israel-Palestinian issue:
Palestine CAUT has formed a partnership with the Palestinian Federation of Unions of University Professors and Employees (PFUUPE) a democratic and non-partisan union representing approximately 7,000 university teachers, researchers and staff. It is a federation of faculty and staff unions at Al-Azhar University, Al-Aqsa University, the Islamic University in Gaza, Brizeit University, Al-Najah University, Bethlehem University, Hebron University, Palestinian Polytechnic University, al-Quds University, al-Quds Open University, and the Arab American University. CAUT is assisting PFUUPE in establishing a permanent secretariat, developing a union training program, and building its communications and advocacy capacity. - See more at:
