    It’s not illegal for them to have the covenant, it’s just not illegal for the law societies not to accredit them. They are allowed to hire based on morality. It’s stupid but if they word it right, it’s legal.

    Most of the allegations against Pike in that article are of the “he’s a dick” variety. Not close to the Wash situation. Not saying it isn’t true but universities (in general, never mind this one) are conservative and loath to make big changes, especially with a program like track that doesn’t bring them much. They are more likely to hope it blows over instead of spending more time and energy and money on it.

    The allegation about what Pike did to Declan during practice sounds pretty severe

    Interesting hire, The article indicated that Rob is now an assistant coach.
    Also, didn't realize TWU had a program between 1997-2002, any one know why they cancelled it?

    Yes.

    And if there is any truth to the article, what is being done about it?

    And if Bomba was let go for reasons of not officially aligning with TW "values" what is being done about it?

    LOL. TWU sits right in the middle of the Fraser Valley Bible Belt and draws heavily from the private Christian secondary schools in the Valley. So if you go to TWU, you know what you're getting yourself into and so you'll have no adverse reaction to the press releases.

    Not a great university but it does have a strong athletic culture.

    Qualifications to be the Athletics Director are what? You were the lead pastor for 15 years at a Evangelical Church in Kamloops and you coached at a local track club?

    Call me cynical but it sure seems like their main criteria was that our head coach needs to be a "good Christian".

    How long will Pike last? I give it a month.

    Quoting: Andrew Jones
    "Time will tell if MB was let go for not being "with the program".

    TW has already experienced the folly of mixing education and prescriptive religious/customs belief for students when their prospective law school was denied (by the BC and Ontario Law Societies, by way of the SCoC) necessary accreditation. This was owing to TW's "community covenant" which includes adherence to sexual abstinence outside of heterosexual marriage, thus discouraging LGBT students from applying to/attending said proposed law school.

    Please note the Term 17 referenda of the mid-'90s, where the good people of Newfoundland and Labrador sensibly voted out the schools a certain powerful church."



    Wouldn't that also discourage single, heterosexual students from applying? Why do you suggest just the LGBT community is discouraged?

    I was paraphrasing the accreditation judgements. I would agree with your point.

    TWU sounds as if it belongs in the Southern US Bible Belt, and we can see the problems that they have around race, gender, abortion, and general ignorance. Why any non religious would go there is a mystery, whether they are LGBT, or straight.

    Shane was a pretty good athlete back in the day. He was actually on the same BC Legion Team as Bomba and Laurier in 1986 in Sudbury. He previously coached at TWU and I would argue that he is coming in with as good, or better, credentials as Bomba or Pike had when they started there. He definitely fits the "Christian" qualifications TWU espouses! he is a strong leader and will be a positive step for TWU given their post-Laurier chaos. Too bad that' they lose Bomba in this shuffle since he was doing great things there and is one of the best.

    I am happy that a hire has been made. From what I can tell, TWU is being intentional in shaping the culture and wanting to move forward. All the best TWU and congratulations Coach Wiebe!
