Transcript-Notes from the Rancourt Dismissal Arbitration
Former member of the University of Ottawa Senate Joseph Hickey has made public his typed notes from the wrongful dismissal arbitration of Professor of Physics Denis Rancourt.
In the introduction to his document, Hickey states that:
“It is my hope that these notes, exhibits, and collected reports will be of use to researchers, students, and other members of the community concerned with the institutional behaviour of universities in Canada and elsewhere.”
The document contains a collection of background information and reports for Days 1-15 of the arbitration hearings, and Hickey’s typed transcript-notes and copies of media articles that appeared during Days 17-28 of hearings.
A .zip folder containing copies of the exhibits entered into evidence during the arbitration is available at the link here. The exhibits are referred to in Hickey’s notes as they were introduced by the lawyers during the hearings.
