Not yet built: the Canadian Human Rights Museum is hiring?

Seems that despite all of the unresolved budgetary issues surrounding Winnipeg's ultimate vanity project, the Canadian Human Rights Museum, that its powers that be are actively seeking to hire historians. Weird. There's no building yet, no consensus on content, and no direction ... hmm, putting the cart before the horse? How are Asper & co. going to pay the salaries?

    The image can be seen at who can supply you with a canvas print of it.
