uLethbridge Faculty Association questions professor’s suspension, calls for further investigation

October 13, 2016

The University of Lethbridge Faculty Association has criticized the university’s decision to suspend a professor accused of denying the Holocaust, arguing that it violates provincial law and contravenes the professor’s faculty contract. Faculty Association President Andrea Amelinckx tells the CBC that the decision to suspend Anthony Hall was made before the university completed a formal complaint investigation provided for in its faculty contracts. “The University of Lethbridge Faculty Association does not condone violations of the Alberta Human Rights Act in any form. We also protest the actions on the part of president (Michael) Mahon and the board in violation of the Post Secondary Learning Act,” Amelinckx said in an emailed statement.
