CUPE, coalition run bus ads targeting Trent residence development

November 10, 2008

The Ontario chapter of the Canadian Union of Public Employees and a coalition called No Private Residence at Trent are running a series of bus ads targeting Trent University's proposed private student residence. The ads read: "Don't let Trent sell out our campus to commercial interests." The ads urge Peterborough city council to reject Trent's application to grant a 99-year lease to a private developer to build the residence on university lands. The plan has drawn criticism from students and city residents. CUPE News Release | No Private Residence at Trent
