Schulich donation names Nipissing/Canadore Learning Library after Mike Harris

August 17, 2010

On Monday, Nipissing University and Canadore College celebrated a $1.5-million donation from philanthropist Seymour Schulich, whose gift to the Learning Library capital campaign will see the facility named the Harris Learning Library after former Ontario premier Mike Harris. Rumours that the Learning Library would be named after Harris resulted in divided opinion among students and the community. In June, teacher unions threatened to boycott student teachers from Nipissing over the university awarding Harris an honorary degree. Nipissing/Canadore News Release | National Post
