|Zeph Zabo (left), Denis Rancourt (right), with M. Zabo's new book about his ordeal|
M. Zabo was subjected to an egregious case of suppression of his academic freedom. Two external thesis evaluators accepted his PhD thesis for defence but two internal U of O law professors wanted him to write a different thesis, one about economic rather than legal analysis. Then "our" Canadian courts refused to recognize that he had a contract with the university that had formally accepted his originally planned thesis topic. Despicable case of academic abuse and legal discrimination.
I support M. Zabo's vehement quest for reparation and justice. Enough is enough. The U of O must be accountable.
