Ontario premier asks universities to forgo lavish thank-yous

March 30, 2008

Earlier this month, the Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations criticized Ryerson University and the University of Toronto for ad spends of up to $80,000 that served no purpose other than thanking the provincial government for funding.  (The story received national coverage in the Toronto Star, Maclean's and the Toronto Sun.) Apparently Ontario premier Dalton McGuinty has asked the Council of Ontario Universities to "refrain from such ads in the future."  Ontario University Report (OCUFA)
