Save Our Sudbury, SWEAC call for intervention in Laurentian’s restructuring

July 26, 2021
The Save Our Sudbury group and the Sudbury Workers, Education and Advocacy Centre (SWEAC) are calling on the Government of Ontario’s new Minister of Colleges and Universities, Jill Dunlop, to intervene in Laurentian University’s restructuring. The Save Our Sudbury group has outlined 12 actions that it would like Dunlop to take, including speaking out against the CCAA proceedings and making a commitment to disallow public institutions to use the CCAA. SWEAC is asking that Dunlop end Laurentian’s insolvency, remove Laurentian’s president and board of governors, and reverse job cuts. Dunlop stated that impacted students would have their pathways to graduation protected and that the government would continue to monitor Laurentian’s situation. The Sudbury Star | CBC (ON)
