Fighting the hydra
I just learned through Zach that Melanie Rutledge is suddenly departing as head of the Writing and Publishing section of the Canada Council. Was the flack too much for her? Unless the next one comes in with the express purpose of reforming things, this may be enough to derail any attempts to pressure those changes from below... we'll have to redirect letters to the new director, etc. In the meantime, the whole issue could be swept under the rug.
