I find McMaster frustrating because they do so much that's absolutely brilliant, but it's so geographically confined. To use space at Innovation Park meant for business purposes, as highwater mentioned, also defeats some of its purpose.

re: the comments made on McMaster salaries, however....

McMaster is hardly the poster child for unfair salary distribution or huge dollar amounts to those at the top. One could nitpick about a person or two at the very pinnacle, but Ontario public sector salary disclosure documents will tell you differently. Those 'at the top' are being rewarded a relatively paltry amount for positions that require, at minimum, a decade or so of education, and often decades more of hard work in their field atop that. Very few make it into these jobs without significant personal and financial sacrifice. The people who even make it on the disclosure list usually barely break the 6 figure mark.

That said, a living wage should be a no-brainer, but it's hardly fair to suggest their full-time employees' salary be cut to compensate, or for largely symbolic cuts for a coupple people at the pinnacle... go after Wal-Mart or another corporation actually screwing lots of people over, not McMaster.
