Former Laurentian professors request Attorney General conduct criminal investigation of university


Two former Laurentian University professors have called for a criminal investigation into the university’s past executives and board members for financial mismanagement. Now that Laurentian has exited its insolvency proceedings, CBC reports that Eduardo Galiano-Riveros and Reuben Roth have asked the Attorney General to investigate whether there was criminal wrongdoing involved in the school’s financial crisis. Galiano-Riveros said that the investigation could help to “bring this whole very painful episode to some degree of closure.” Laurentian’s faculty association President Fabrice Colin expressed his support for the request. and CBC report that Laurentian Interim President Sheila Embleton responded with a statement asserting that the university is currently focused on its future and new strategic plan.
