I just have to give this guy some support, since it is Canadian politics, and not trumpyism, which is what everybody, on the dog walk, talks about.
This is nothing new. Every time some physicist says "There's no physics in global warming.", some gorey type wants him fired. So, when this professor bites the nanny-state hand that feeds him at McGill, he has to resign.
I'm not going on and on about Quebec. They can do any silly thing they want as long as they threaten the feds, to squeeze money out of them. I'm just saying that there is an economic effect of political suppression. Soon, bright people won't want to say anything, and then they just want to leave. Even fed money can't stop the decline. I know that if the nutters in Quebec actually read English, then I wouldn't say that I agree with this guy 100%. It the same thing, that the warming nutters never read anything to do with physics, so I can rant all I want to. :)
