We are busy working on a Petition to the Government of Alberta in which we ask all Albertans to join us in urging the Government to find the funding necessary to sustain the University. The University is a public good that needs to be funded from the public purse. Our petition also asks that the Government halt increases to student tuition fees. Post-secondary education must be accessible to all.
We are aiming to have the Petition “live” on an on-line Petition website by Wednesday at the latest. If you would like to contribute to the process of refining the draft Petition, please let us know, and we will add you to our Google docs working group.
We also welcome suggestions for how to get the word out about the Petition.
For the Petition to succeed we need as many Albertans as possible to sign on.
Do you have any ideas for spreading the word about the Petition not only across the University but across Alberta?
If so, please let us know. We need your help!
