JACK, you should really get your facts straight. Ann Marie Vaughn doesn't make all the decisions at CNA, there's a lot more on the go there than anyone knows. Also, I don't think anyone would be 'flocking' to Academy Canada because of the downfall of Medical Laboratory Sciences seeing as Academy Canada is in St. John's/Corner Brook and this program was offered in Grand Falls, the campus that also has said Medical Laboratory Assistant program that is very successful and not very similar as you have wrongly said. Not to mention Academy Canada charges outrages prices for programs not as accredited or recognized as CNA's. Of course all of this was done wrong, and they should have made sure that the campus had the infrastructure first, but as far as I know you can't blame this on Vaughn at all because she was appointed after the program had been planned and placed in Grand Falls and now she is left to clean up the mess of whoever decided to get ahead of themselves and put it there.

Burke and Dunderdale interfere with the running of CNA, appoint people to run it, and the backside falls out of it. This is a lot more than embarassing, this shows you what is wrong with the way things are being done.

Political interference, CONA would not have created this course in central unless they had pressure from Sullivan et al. Remember the waste of the PC party in the next election ABC in NL makes sense!

I guess this is an example of trying to do some things in Rural NL that just cannot be done. I guess if it wasn't attempted the same naysayers would be complaining the other way. Sometimes you don't know what you can, or cannot do, until you try.

The right hand does not know what the left hand is doing at CNA or Joan Burke's department.

Due to the recent string of blunders on Anne Marie Vaughan's part, including cuts to in-demand programs, the Qatar civil suit, and now, the Medical Laboratory Sciences program not up to standards, perhaps now is the time for CNA President to face a leadership review and possible dismissal for gross incompetence. In addition, CNA's Medical Laboratory Sciences mistakes could result in students flocking to Academy Canada for its similar program, Medical Laboratory Assistant.
