A $7.5-million gift from David ... [cached]

A $7.5-million gift from David Asper to U of T's Faculty of Law will establish a constitutional centre named in the donor's honour. A significant portion of the gift - the largest ever to a law school in Canada - will also support the faculty's recently announced building renewal and expansion. "David's gift will have a transformative effect on constitutional rights here at home and will also play a vital role in articulating Canada's constitutional vision to the broader world," says law dean Mayo Moran.

Asper, executive vice-president of Can-West Global Communications, says the gift stems from a commitment to the rights and freedoms enshrined in the Canadian Constitution.

The "big splash" so-to-speak, came Jan. 17, when Asper appeared in person at a jammed Toronto Conservative campaign rally to introduce Kent.
As a result of cross-ownership, corporate censorship and marginalized diversity, our entire country has been "dumbed-down" first by Conrad Black who calls himself a "Darwinian capitalist", and now, David Asper.
