Rita Wong: Why can’t we elect B.C. university chancellors?

Charles Menzies, who serves on UBC’s board of governors, proposes that chancellors should be elected through free, fair and open elections. This is what used to happen, until it was replaced with a closed door process in 2008. Rita Wong writes that sheI would welcome such an open process at universities across B.C., including Emily Carr University of Art and Design, where she works -- and she would like to see Libby Davies considered for the job.
