The Pallister government has demanded that public sector and quasi—sector institutions, including universities, make submissions to government respecting how these institutions could make budget cuts of 10%%, 20%, and 30% respectively. The messages from government have at times been contradictory with regard to the duration of the cuts but one thing is certain – this mandate is coming at a time when universities are most needed. Our Members are speaking out by way of op-eds and letters to the Premier, MLAs, and news media. You are strong, committed, and persuasive. UWFA Members can and should be proud of one another. Here is what we are saying.
