NL government accused of interfering in CNA affairs

April 27, 2010

Newfoundland and Labrador's NDP leader is accusing the province of not letting former College of the North Atlantic president Jean Madill manage her own institution. Madill tendered her resignation Sunday, a day before the NL government announced that financial errors at CNA's Qatar campus totalled $5 million. In a letter sent to college employees, Madill suggested the province was taking direct action in CNA's financial affairs and had bypassed her. The NDP leader says the letter raises several questions about autonomy in PSE, and that the provincial government must have hands-off with the day-to-day running of post-secondary schools.
