  • They didn't teach this at university either in the undergraduate or graduate level, so I'm working on a hunch at this point - but there is a litmus for tenure of professorship at the university level in Canada.  For instance, if there is a run in with the law in Canada, and especially concerning email and social media, then there is a chance that this individual may either become a police officer (considering the charges are on a technicality) or is on tenure track for assistant, associate, full or emeritus status (not bothering someone with email). My hunch goes so far as to say that if one does not use internet or email for a few months then this designates level of tenure up to the emeritus which I have been able to achieve. I'm pretty sure I'm the first cop to become a professor and I apologize for tooting my horn but l have just realized this through an epiphany on this audio!
