Guy Bourgouin MPP for Mushkegowuk—James Bay

Government of Ontario

Support the University of Sudbury

Whereas Franco-Ontarians have fought and organized for a century to see a French-only higher education institution developed for, by and with Franco-Ontarians in the North through the University of Sudbury, and;

Whereas 65,9% of Franco-Ontarians believe the province should fund the University of Sudbury towards its French language only programming for higher education, and;

Whereas Franco-Ontarians are still fighting to see their charter right protected and have the same higher education given in the French minority language, and;

Whereas studies have shown that at full capacity, the University of Sudbury will generate 89,3M$ for the region, and;

Whereas there are 8 500 Franco-Ontarians in the region aged between 10-19 who could enroll in higher education in French close to their home in the next 10 years;

We the undersigned, petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario as follows:
To provide the needed funding as requested by University of Sudbury of 10M$ a year to ensure the future of University of Sudbury, a higher education institution made for, by and with Franco-Ontarians, starting now.
