Groups demand more information, create petition to reverse ON’s rejection of USudbury funding proposal

News Opinion

Several groups are voicing their concerns regarding the Government of Ontario’s recent decision to reject the Université de Sudbury’s funding request to create a standalone French-language university. Three MPPs penned an editorial for calling on ON to reverse the decision and “invest in a French-language university worthy of our youth, worthy of our thinkers and worthy of our aspirations.” The Coalition nord-ontarienne pour une université de langue française has filed two Freedom of Information requests with ON to learn more about the reasons behind their refusal. A petition has also been launched by MPP Jamie West, MPP Guy Bourgouin, and ON NDP leader Marit Stiles that calls on the province to fund USudbury. (1) | (2) | The Sudbury Star
