2013-12-09

Queen’s University professor Jill Scott (Languages, Literatures and Cultures) is able to comment on Rob Ford’s apology to the City of Toronto on Sunday on his weekly radio show. Dr. Scott researches the social dynamics of conflict and resolution. She is able to speak to how Ford’s apology compares with other political apologies. 

“Torontonians have been waiting for a long time to hear Rob Ford take responsibility for his actions,” says Dr. Scott. “Yesterday's speech was a first start but it was a long way from meeting the standards of a proper apology, whether political or interpersonal.”
