Canada Christian College controversy continues to escalate in ON

November 6, 2020
The controversy surrounding Canada Christian College and its application to create new degree programs and become the Canada University and School of Graduate Theological Studies has continued to escalate. The Ontario Universities and Colleges Coalition (OUCC), which represents over 435,000 faculty, staff and students, has issued a statement expressing concern with the legislation related to the institution and arguing that it should be denied university status. CBC reports that a video has emerged of ON Premier Doug Ford sending personal birthday wishes to CCC head Charles McVety in 2019. The article further states that the college has not completed ON’s official independent process for approving degree programs. CBC | OCUFA (OUCC) (ON)
