Not a joke.
Many people reading the headline of this article probably think it’s a joke.
We wish it was.
But it’s not.
It’s right there on the website, as you can see below:
In addition to the photo, I’ve included it in text form:

It’s a big insult to the victims of 9/11 to have a university located at that address, and it makes it even more disturbing that the Aga Khan Foundation gets millions in funding from Canadian taxpayers.
Why would we give money to an organization that puts a university on that address?
It sends a message of subservience and weakness that despite such an insulting provocation – especially considering that 26 Canadians died on 9/11 – that the federal government would still give money to that organization.
As I’ve said before, we should stop giving foreign aid entirely, and we certainly shouldn’t be giving taxpayer money to organizations that would put their university on such a disgraceful address.
