Protesters at U-of-L Voice Concerns Over Cuts to Advanced Education in Alberta

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: A large group of University of Lethbridge support staff and students gathered along University Drive Tuesday afternoon, protesting provincial funding cuts to advanced education.

 

The university is currently facing an $11-million reduction in their operating grant. The 2013 provincial budget cut a total of $147-million from the operating budgets of all Alberta post-secondary institutions.

 

Alberta Union of Provincial Employees Vice President Glen Scott spoke at the protest, talking about the impact the cuts could have on the entire community, "If enrollment drops, you're going to see less students coming every fall to attend the University of Lethbridge so there's going to be less people buying groceries, renting places, spending money on clothes, school supplies, all those things. And obviously if there's layoffs, which that is a potential as well, that's even more money going from the Lethbridge economy."
