Chairman Chow bounces back: finds new way to live off public teat

Four months after the end of the bruising Toronto mayoral race, Olivia Chow is going back to school.

Ryerson University will on Monday announce that the former Trinity-Spadina MP and city councillor has accepted a three-year visiting professorship at Ryerson University’s faculty of arts starting March 1.

In the part-time post she may teach her own courses, and will lecture on community organizing and activism and help organize events and a major symposium. A primary focus will be student mentorship, both by her and others who know how to turn passion into progress.
