"U of Zero" remark earns John Tory an "F"

    John Tory doesn't do homework - again!

    TORONTO, Sept. 3 /CNW/ - John Tory deserves a failing grade of "F" for
referring to the University of Ottawa as the "U of Zero."
    John Tory deserves a failing grade for failing to recognize that some of
Canada's most prominent citizens are graduates of the University of Ottawa
    -  Dr. Wilbert Keon, Conservative Party senator
    -  Hon. Hugh Segal, Conservative Party Senator
    -  Norm Sterling, sitting PC MPP, 2007 provincial PC candidate, former
       Ontario PC Cabinet Minister
    -  Rick Byers, Oakville 2007 provincial PC candidate
    -  Chris Savard, Stormont-Dundas-Glengarry 2007 provincial PC candidate
    -  Trina Morissette, Ottawa Centre 2007 provincial PC candidate
    -  Rahim Jaffer, Conservative Party MP
    -  Hon. Michel Bastarache, Supreme Court Justice
    -  François Boileau, first French Language Services Commissioner of
    -  William Elliott, Commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police
    -  Jocelyne Bourgon, former Clerk of the Privy Council of Canada
    -  Paul Tellier, former Clerk of the Privy Council of Canada
    -  Lisa Laflamme, CTV News National Correspondent
    -  Mary Lou Findlay, former host of CBC Radio's As It Happens
    -  Angela Hewitt, concert pianist
    -  Roch Voisine, Canadian music star
    -  Hon. Dalton McGuinty, Premier of Ontario
    -  Howard Hampton, leader of the Ontario New Democratic Party
    -  Alex Trebek, host, Jeopardy!

    The question for John Tory now is: Will he now apologize for his comment
which insults the University of Ottawa and all its fine graduates?
    The University of Ottawa is one of Canada's leading post-secondary
    John Tory needs to learn that leadership means promoting Ontario's great
universities, not running them down.
    It's another example of questionable judgment from John Tory.
