Providence disappointed after passage of bill granting full university status refused


Providence University College has expressed disappointment after a bill to recognize Providence with full “university status” was halted. Providence noted that the NDP Opposition “denied permission to discuss the bill in yesterday’s session, citing procedural rules,” and that the bill will have to be reintroduced later since this was the last opportunity to pass the bill before the summer break began. “While we are disappointed with the outcome of yesterday’s events, we are in this for the long haul,” said Providence President Dr Kenton Anderson. “We are patient but determined, and by God’s grace, we will see this through.”
