Port Stanley News RSS Feed  Regional Standing with students in advocating for quality education

Standing with students in advocating for quality education

On Friday March 8, 2019 the London Student Coalition, OPSEU Local 110, OPSEU Local 109, PSAC Local 610, Western Society of Graduate Students, UWOFA (Western Faculty Association), St. Thomas and District Labour Council, London and District Labour Council, and supporters were gathered outside Elgin-Middlesex-London MPP Jeff Yurek's Constituency Office in St Thomas.

Students and supporters were calling on MPP Jeff Yurek to oppose the announced cuts to OSAP, cuts to university and college funds, and an attempt to undermine student services and student advocacy.

"We stand with students in advocating for quality education," said OPSEU 110 President Darryl Bedford. "When the government considers changes, they needed to first consult with students, faculty, support staff, administrators, and business. The government eliminated that vital consultation mechanism when they cancelled the Ontario College Task Force on their very first day of office. Not only do we say that move was illegal, morally it is wrong to ignore the voice of 'the people'."
