Provincial budget anxiety
A story in The Brunswickan today focuses on worries within the university community about impending provincial budget cuts to PSE:
“PSE minister holds stakeholders meeting: UNBSU president says no commitments are being made,” Colin McPhail, The Brunswickan (9 Feb./11).
The UNBSU made a pre-budget submission calling for a tuition freeze and increased operating funds.
UNB president Eddy Campbell is quoted as categorizing budget cuts to PSE in Nova Scotia as “massive disinvestment,” and as being “very concerned” about the impending budget here in NB.
The late, un-lamented Liberal government urged us to “be in this place” while its policies pushed us out.
Let’s see how this new lot does.
