It is not surprising that the effects are still being felt. Similarly, the adoption of diversity policies and the opening of doors to Aboriginal peoples, members of racial minorities, and persons with disabilities are even more recent. It takes time to work out the consequences of such significant shifts. Corresponding with and to some extent causing the opening of the doors to the university is the very recent shift in the stated (official) norms about participation in Canadian society.

What is at stake, then, when there is an imposition of accountability is the loss of the state of not being accountable or of not feeling accountable – a delightful state to be sure, and one whose loss understandably is feared by those who enjoy it. What is also at stake is the attainment of the state of being truly and meaningfully included – a state much to be desired as well.
