Research excellence

The WASPish old boys' club is showering its brighter members with gold.

The competition results have just been announced for the winners of the federally-funded Canada Excellence Research Chair program.

Today's Globe & Mail (print edition) has a "Brain Gain" insert that offers some detail about the Chairs and their projects, including photographs.

All nineteen Chairs are male. All but one are white.

2010. And you haven't come a long way, baby.

UPDATE: We have somewhat of a tradition of this sort of thing in Canada. When will they ever learn?
