LETHBRIDGE - Lethbridge City Council will be sending a letter to Premier Redford to ask that
she reconsider funding cuts to post secondary education.
In the latest
budget, the province cut 7 percent of operating grants to post secondary
institutions, which is creating challenges across the province.
Rajko Dodic says "when you have two post secondary institutions in this city,
with the Lethbridge College and the University of Lethbridge, with the number of
students, with the number of folks that are employed there, this is going to
have a significant trickle down effect on not only the University and the
College but as well as other businesses that depend on whether it be the
students, or the professors , or the administrative staff, or the support
Mayor Dodic hopes the letter will have some impact, if not now,
than certainly in the future moving forward.
