It has been reported that Senator Pamela Wallin the subject of intense scrutiny for her senate expense account is the recipient of 13 honorary degree from Canadian universities. What this says about higher education is anybody’s guess.
One wonders what her accomplishments were to merit these honours. As far as we know she was a telegenic bingo caller and not much else.
Her real skill appears to be as a Senator-shill for the Tory party.
With this in mind the University of Centre Island has decided to grant an honorary degree to Mr. John Dickie for “extraordinary accomplishments in the vocal arts. For four decades Mr.Dickie has successfully channelled James Brown, Fats Domino, Hank Williams and a host of others.”The degree (Causa honoris) will be presented at the onshore campus of Centre Island University in the Panda Bay Coffee Shop in Toronto’s least end.Dickie who prided himself on his grade 12 accomplishments at Neil McNeil High School says he was entirely deserving of the honour.
