If any of you been wondering what RIM’s former co-leader has been up to of late… the answer… is getting into more controversy!!! In this latest event, Jim B. offered $30 million dollars as a donation to York University, which was to be matched by the Ontario government; however, York University turned him down!! York University state the reasoning behind the rejection was because “it threatened York’s autonomy and academic freedom” according to an article at the Globe and Mail.
In response Jim wrote this piece yesterday in the Globe and Mail. Seems Jim is none too happy. Perhaps his unhappiness is furthered by the fact that 7 Ontario Universities just accepted a $175 million dollar donation from IBM. OUCH!
