Students in NL, BC sign petitions requesting extensions to online learning

January 12, 2022
Students at Memorial University, the British Columbia Institute of Technology, Langara College, and Douglas College have created petitions asking their institutions to reconsider requiring in-person classes due to high COVID-19 case counts. Memorial students created a petition requesting that in-person labs be moved online at least until the end of January. The students questioned if there were adequate safety measures in place on campus. In BC, almost 1,000 Langara students signed a petition asking for a delayed return to class for nursing students. Over 1,500 Douglas students and over 3,500 BCIT students signed petitions to continue online learning. Saltwire (MUN) | CTV News (BCIT, Langara) (NL | BC)
