Ford Celebrates Opening of Private American University While Slashing Public Education - 2019-09-17
Ford and his Conservatives are facing backlash for appearing at a ribbon-cutting ceremony for a private American university, while slashing public education funding, firing teachers and increasing class sizes.
Niagara University in Vaughan began operation earlier this year on January 21st. Tuition at the university costs over $30,000 per year. The ribbon-cutting ceremony took place on September 15th.
Critics pointed out Ford was only too happy to appear at a private university but won't appear at any public school.
