From Fredericton

December 9, 2008

The New Brunswick Human Rights Commission released a number of recommendations today, among them the abolition of mandatory retirement: “We are also recommending that the exception that allows mandatory retirement for employees who receive pensions from their employers be repealed. Mandatory retirement is age discrimination, and it has been abolished in nearly every jurisdiction in Canada.”

And, the Capital Investments have been released. There is the expected money for deferred maintenance, though as the T-J reports,

“It’s certainly good news, given the current economic conditions,” Lawrence Durling, vice-president of finance at St. Thomas University in Fredericton, said Monday. He noted, however, that the expected funds would only partially cover the school’s backlog of deferred maintenance costs.

Cranky lot, we university types.
