Random MUN thought for this evening

Has any reporter tried to track down in-coming chancellor Rick Hillier and ask what he thinks of the idea of the provincial government vetoing the hiring of a new university president? Because I think that would be a very interesting question to ask him.

For that matter, has anyone tried to speak to John Crosbie, former chancellor and current Lt. Governor of the province what he thinks. Because I think that would be another person who it would be fascinating to hear from.

Just throwing it out there. Because hey, I'm the curious type.

How about some former education ministers (besides the two we've heard from):

Lynn Verge
Loyola Hearn

Former university president like Art May.

I doubt very much Rick will say anything at all, but others aren't feeling so constrained.

Some regents who aren't on the search committee?

Interesting idea, but as the L-G, Crosbie should definitely *not* be heard from on this issue, or any other political issue out there.

Yes, but when has that ever stopped Crosbie before. However, I think he has remained pretty quiet since becoming Lt. Gov, which makes me wonder what medication they have him on to keep him quiet.
