    China removes accreditation from University of Calgary after Dalai Lama honour

    link

    As if we didn't need another example of how childish the Chinese government it, here is a new low even for Beijing.

    CALGARY The Chinese government has removed the University of Calgary from its list of accredited institutions a move school officials are concerned is connected to the Dalai Lama's visit last fall
    A spokeswoman with the Chinese consulate in Calgary would not respond to questions about why the government removed the university's name, saying only cryptically that the U of C "should know."

    They are looking after their own interests. Did you expect something different from them?

    No, but you're not exactly going to accomplish much by removing UofC from your lists. Ohhh, they're not accredited in China anymore, oohhh, they're mildly inconvenienced.

    Think beyond this move. It is interesting that they did this before Obama meets with the Dalai Lama. Seems to be a message to America.

    Yeah, probably. Even though it's a Canadian university, close enough I guess.

    May I assume this means no chinese students at this particular university? Our local university here is inundated with chinese students. It's my understanding they pay very well.

    Considering the financial state we're in I'm guessing members of this administration is listening closely.
