August 31, 2021
The New Democratic Party and the Conservative Party have made pledges in support of Laurentian University and the University of Sudbury. In a visit to both institutions, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh said that an NDP government would act to “save” Laurentian, and announced plans to support students through efforts such as student debt forgiveness, the removal of interest from federal loans, and increased federal student grants. The Conservatives spoke about USudbury, pledging that they would support USudbury in its bid to become a French-language school as well as the transition of French-language programs from Laurentian to USudbury.
