$111 million for Alberta campuses

August 24, 2007

The Alberta government has announced $350 million for infrastructure repair and capital equipment upgrades to more than 100 public buildings across the province, including $111 million for colleges and universities.  The Calgary Herald observes that uCalgary alone has $300 million worth of deferred maintenance, while SAIT, Mount Royal College, and ACAD together have another $112 million in urgent needs. Cynics suspect the move is in response to sinking government approval ratings in recent weeks. The Calgary Herald | Alberta News Release | CBC
