NDP criticizes ON announcement regarding USudbury funds.


The New Democratic Party of Ontario has criticized to the Government of Ontario’s announcement last summer that it would not provide funding to the Université de Sudbury. CBC reports that ON previously refused to fund Université de Sudbury because it did not “reflect the current demand and enrolment trends,” a conclusion it attributed to a variety of factors and a PEQAB review. However, the ON NDP states that the report—which was recently made public—shows that the panel recommended that the government move forward with the project. The project was also approved by ON’s Ministry of Colleges and Universities. “The government is playing political games with this issue,” said Ontario NDP leader Marit Stiles, who called for ON’s Minister of Education and the Minister of Francophone Affairs to share details with Franco-Ontarians.
