Statement made on 23 March 2010 by Senator Wilfred Moore
Hon. Wilfred P. Moore:
Honourable senators, I wish to return to the issue that Senator Dyck discussed. The honourable senator mentioned that the University of Regina was prepared to take over the administration of the First Nations University of Canada. The leader was concerned and mentioned the words "accountability and transparency."
The University of Regina is clearly a long-term, historic, well-funded school, and if that were to happen, why would this matter not be available for further consideration?
If that answered the leader's main concerns, as she mentioned in her remarks, it seems to me that the minister would have to consider that this historic, learned higher education institution would take over the administration concerns and that the students or the faculty not be uprooted and things could proceed.
Could the leader speak to that, as to whether or not, with that information, this matter can be considered further?
