NDP Leader Brian Mason Meets Local Groups Affected By Provincial Cuts

 
 

LETHBRIDGE - NDP Leader Brian Mason met with the Students Union and Faculty Association at the University of Lethbridge on Friday.

 

Mason says "the government pretends that they're freezing tuition but actually we're going to see a $200 increase for Lethbridge students here at this University as a result of that, there's going to be a reduction of about 30 to 40 faculty positions as well, and they're looking at closing programs." He adds these cuts are going to hurt students, the local economy and southern Alberta.

 

Mason believes the royalty revenue just isn't there anymore and by refusing to reverse tax cuts for wealthy Albertans and profitable corporations, it means ordinary people and families are paying the price.

 

Later in the day, Mason was going to meet with Lethbridge Family Services to discuss the cuts to PDD (Persons with Developmental Disabilities) and other reductions for vulnerable people in southern Alberta.
