Missing Link

I know that I should let sleeping dogs lie, but really, would the fine folks at the Canadian Federation of Shitheads? Nope.

The well-paid group running the CFS truly continually to put their own interests before the rank and file. That is why they will stop at nothing to protect their own. The problem this time is that Philip Link and Joey Hanson may have broken one law too many.

It is also a tad rich for the CFS - a bastion of equality and non-hierarchical structure to employ Philip Link (his rap sheet including violence against women should be the largest of large red flags).

Joey Hanson served as a character witness for Philip Link at his assault and battery trial. Hanson is a long-time influential CFS leader, treasurer and the director of Travel Cuts, and while Hanson spent his time defending Link of any wrongdoings, what he really should have been focusing on was his recent run-in with the law. After a recent forensic audit of the student union at Douglas College in B.C., Hanson was accused of misappropriating $300,000 in funds. The audit found that Hanson was able to draw focus away from his embezzlement by covering it up with more student dollars that he received in the form of CFS funds from his good pal Philip Link.

Students are asking questions. Members are demanding answers. Legal authorities are probing. Judges are overruling referenda. The dogs are breathing down the necks of one of the most corrupt and morally bankrupt organizations.

What a dirty web they weave.
