~ JUST WOW. Pretty much speaks for itself, eh? Soviet tactics at a Canadian university. Here are my past Mehta stories.
IMHO, the AU President should be sacked. And what will CAUT (Canadian Association of University Teachers) say?
I expect NOTHING from Glorious Leader Justin in Ottawa, because Prof. Rick is a thought-criminal. They’re barely human, let alone Canadian, dontcha know.

Statement by Rick Mehta Regarding His Dismissal from Acadia University
On August 31, 2018, President Peter Ricketts fired me from my position of Associate Professor of Psychology at Acadia University. In the letter that he gave me at my dismissal hearing, he stated that he was firing me on the basis of issues that “were wide ranging and include failure to fufill [my] academic responsibilities, unprofessional conduct, breach of privacy, and harassment and intimidation of students and other members of the University community.”
President Ricketts’ letter of dismissal states only broad categories of misconduct instead of providing any specific examples of misconduct on my part. The university hid behind vague accusations and opaque investigations, while refusing to spell out their concerns – which were based on filtered complaints. I believe that their stealth charges were pretexts to get rid of me at any cost. The real reason for my dismissal has to do with a culture war that is taking place in universities all over Canada and much of the Western world.
