Letters J’accuse ...!


I fear for the future of the CPA profession in Canada. Why? Just look at our flag- ship publication, CPA Magazine. In just one edition (April), the publication is implicitly accused of cruelty to animals, disrespecting the South Asian commu- nity and promoting a chauvinist image of academic accountants. Or are we perhaps, as professionals,


taking political correctness just a mite too far? Jack Noodelman MONTREAL


A good work I’m a long-time reader of your magazine who has been in the profession for 50 years. While the technical articles of the past were very helpful in my work, there seems to be a greater variety of topics today. The articles on the workplace, fraud, etc., and the interviews with famous businesspeople, such as Mitch Garber, are interesting. I want to compliment your staff for


publishing a good magazine. I look forward to it every month.

Advance ethics (The Right Thing, April) I very much appreciate this and Karen Wensley’s other articles on ethics. I post almost every article on our corporate intranet as one of the ways we advance ethical decision-making in our company, Century Group, which is involved in land development and property management in Metro Vancouver. Thank you, Wensley and CPA Magazine, for supporting this important discussion. Sean Hodgins
