Alberta post-secondary cuts "kneecapping" a generation - 2019-11-02
"The kneecapping of the University of Alberta at this time in Alberta's history is the kneecapping of a generation — a generation in the midst of climate crisis and desperately in need of all of the resources a great university can offer it."
There's little ambiguity about how Carolyn Sale, an associate professor of English and film studies at the University of Alberta, feels about the provincial budget released last week under the leadership of Premier Jason Kenney's United Conservative Party.
Sale wrote those words on the blog she runs with contributions from some of her colleagues at the school. When reached for an interview, she said she wanted people to be aware of what the unseen cost of provincial budget cuts would be.
