Alberta's UCP government has moved to put a business stamp on the province's university governance by replacing NDP appointees with private sector figures.

That drew a swift rebuke from the opposition NDP who dubbed the moves "a return to PC-era cronyism."

The 11 appointments include new board of governor chairs such as Cenovus Energy CEO Alex Pourbaix at Mount Royal University, Grafton Asset Management President Geeta Sankappanavar at the University of Calgary and AltaLink head Scott Thon at SAIT.
