I am deeply troubled by the article [Connecting the dots: Academic freedom at LU-March 5, 2014]. The article if rife with errors. The most important is that author fails to note that the CAUT Academic Freedom Fund was set up as a voluntary fund with no obligation on any member association to donate. We always hope member associations will donate but fully respect their right to defend academic freedom as each feels appropriate.
