The Concordian interviews André Boisclair, who recently started giving lectures on crisis management at Concordia as a teaching assistant under former Liberal Party activist John Parisella. It starts off with marketingese about how happy he is to teach there (in response to questions about the controversies surrounding his appointment) and then descends into a confrontational debate over whether sovereignists should teach at anglo universities:
Is coming to Concordia a sign that you’re no longer a sovereignist?
What are you getting at?
Well, I don’t know, a lot of people say that a sovereigntist might have rather chosen to go to Universite de Montréal or UQÀM to teach.
Why is that?
Well. Because they’re French universities.
Are you defending the principle of segregation sir?
Boisclair also says pretty definitively that he’s done with politics.
No word on whether he spent any time doing lines with CSU executives
or checking out the stalls in the Hall Building’s 8th floor men’s bathroom (ok ok, that one was unfair).
