Judge gives Laurentian until May to develop plan to exit creditor protection

An Ontario judge has extended the creditor process for Laurentian University until May 31st. “The filing is almost a year old,” Chief Justice Geoffrey Morawetz told the court. “It’s time to get going and get towards a plan.” CBC reports that a governance and operational review of how the university is run was “finalized very recently” and is currently circulating among school leaders. The unions representing Laurentian’s faculty, staff, and students have called for more transparency from the university, and ON’s information and privacy commissioner has argued that the stay on freedom of information requests should be lifted now that the first year has passed. Morowitz stated that the issues will be addressed at a future hearing. CBC| CBC (2) Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
