It was wrong and mischievous to say that Brian Cantor's remarks on restructuring "followed last week's furore" over plans to cut departments in other universities ("York v-c slams his peers for haste in axeing subjects", December 3).
Professor Cantor's comments on the various factors that have led to York University's success were made during a conversation with your reporter on November 12.
The other falsehood lies in the headline. Professor Cantor's comments were reflections on York's situation - not on the situation anywhere else.
