So I have government envy.

April 4, 2009

Not envy of the government, mind: I’m envious of Nova Scotians because of their government:

[Nova Scotia] has approved a $256 million additional appropriation for university funding in 2008-09.

“Funding for universities has always been a key priority for the government, and even more so in the current economic climate,” said Finance Minister Jamie Muir. “Education is the foundation for the future growth of our province.” [source]

Could be worse, I suppose; we could be at the University of Guelph, where they just lost their women’s studies programme.

    I would characterize it as “relative deprivation”!
