Laurentian groups brace for funding shortfalls

July 4, 2019

Laurentian University’s student newspaper, The Lambda, and radio station CKLU are preparing for the worst as provincial legislation that gives students the option to opt out of non-essential services goes into effect. Ashley Thompson, who sits on the student newspaper’s Board of Directors, told CBC that the paper will have to find ways to survive on less money. "What I expect to happen is that The Lambda, if it publishes at all, and I hope it will, will publish in an online version," he said. CKLU General Manager Rob Straughan added that the station has already cut some staff in order to keep expenses down. CBC (ON)
