Faculty association invites public to town hall meetings on federal cuts to science, research

  • Print

The University of Manitoba Faculty Association is inviting the public to two public town halls next week to examine what it calls the federal government’s regressive cuts to science and research.

The sessions are part of a Canadian Association of University Teachers’ Get Science Right campaign.

The free sessions "provide a forum to discuss ongoing concerns over the Canadian government’s regressive science policy and cuts to research areas such as public health, sciences and environmental protection."

Both start at 7 p.m.

Tuesday’s session is in French at Centre étudiant Étienne-Gaboury, Université de Saint-Boniface, 200, av. de la Cathédrale.

The English Language town hall goes Wednesday at Carol Shields Auditorium, Millennium Library, 251 Donald St.
