Missing Data Won't Stop Maclean's Rankings

October 20, 2006

Maclean's has presented 22 Canadian universities with FIPPA requests, but managing editor Tony Keller says they have "not gotten much back from any of them," and some schools have refused to share information "so basic it will make you laugh." Nonetheless, the university rankings issue will hit newsstands November 2, using data from other sources. "If theyre going to go ahead with this it confirms that Maclean's has absolutely no validity," said Carleton president David Atkinson. Keller said Macleans will get a "head start" in the future by issuing requests to universities many months in advance. Carleton Charlatan campus paper article
