The response from CFS

This morning we sent them a letter about the “A” they gave the NDP about post-secondary education.

Here’s the audible response we’ve gotten from them, hours later.


  1. Norbert Stanley says:

    Good luck with a reply from the CFS-0……it is a wing of the NDP, full of pompous, self righteous and sanctimonious folks who contort facts, manufacture facts, and generally will do anything that gives support to the NDP, all the while purporting to be `non partisan`. They are as non partisan as say, the Fraser institute or the Canadian Tax Payers Federation is non partisan.
    It is the same group that has consistently attacked the Premier since his election in 2003, not just attacking policy but personally, never on record of course. They hate the Liberals. They have to, it’s a requirement of membership in the NDP, which most of them hold.
    Why don’t you ask for the methodology? There is none, certainly not one rooted in anything remotely academic. The methodology for assessing platforms includes the automatic placement of the NDP in the lead….and so as to not appear overly partisan, they slot in the Liberals or the Greens close by – you know to make it look good.
    Check out their website, it blatantly anti liberal.
    The CFS doesn’t want to solve PSE problems, that is why they keep moving the goal posts, nothing is ever good enough. It can’t be, their jobs, full time and well paid, depend on creating the allusion of a perpetual crisis.
    I do however take some comfort knowing that no one gives a rat’s ass what they say; they live in an echo chamber.

    • The Doctor says:

      I agree that the CFS is probably one of the most consistently big “L” left-wing organizations in Canada. Their entire approach to education policy has always been a one-note symphony: more government money is the solution to everything. They are utterly inflexible, partisan and doctrinaire.

    Love it!

  3. Richard says:

    No shock there.

    You know, Warren, in certain parts CFS is primarily known as the acronym for “Chicken Fried Steak”…. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Flickr_wordridden_3397801155–Chicken_fried_steak.jpg
