The Costs of Learning

A friend has asked me to comment on the Harper government's cutting off funding for the Canadian Council on Learning.

I told him that I was yet qualified to offer an opinion because I didn't really have a good clear picture of what the CCL did to earn its $85 Million start-up grant.

Today, the Globe & Mail editorial tries to answer this question.

While I don't know that they've covered all the bases here, I tend to agreeing with their take on the matter.

Do you know anything about the CCL? Has it earned its keep? Will it?

How many other 'Think Tanks' should get their annual stipends cut by the feds.?
