'With the greatest of respect, nobody would describe Canada Christian College as an esteemed seat of higher learning, or its president as a revered figure within the academic world.'

I'm fortunate enough to have attended three universities in my life; two of them many years ago in Britain, and one — Trinity College at the University of Toronto for my masters of divinity — quite recently. I hope I'm not an educational snob, but for a degree to mean something, and for a university to merit its name and reputation, we must surely demand a certain academic status and level of political objectivity.

Which is why the proposal by the Ontario government to give Canada Christian College the privilege of granting BA and B.Sc. degrees and be known as a university is rather surprising. Particularly as Bill 213, entitled the "Better for People, Smarter for Business Act" is broad and extensive, but primarily intended to help small businesses survive the COVID-19 pandemic.
