Cégep Garneau to review materials after social media backlash


After an uproar on social media, Cégep Garneau has announced that it will be reviewing recent materials distributed in a political science course. Materials distributed in the class defined the concepts of political left and right according to six different themes: Human, society, culture, history, economy, and politics. A table in the materials reportedly defined the left as being “altruistic, rational, and a master of the self,” while the right was defined as “selfish, irrational, a slave to impulses and instincts.” The Cégep published a statement on Twitter to assert that the institution does not encourage any particular political affiliation.
