I almost vomited when I saw this. These people are truly despicable. The university should be ashamed that such people are in their employ. Unfortunately this is the calibre of people who teach our kids. The alumni should stop giving this "university" money and these buffoons should be ostracized. I have already called the office of the President. The University switchboard is 13065854111.
REGINA -- A group of professors at the University of Regina is protesting a scholarship program for the dependents of dead soldiers, arguing it promotes militarism.
"We think this program is a glorification of Canadian imperialism in Afghanistan," said Jeffrey Webber, one of 16 professors who drafted an open letter to university president Vianne Timmons.
The program, called Project Hero, provides financial aid for children of Canadian Forces personnel who have lost their lives while serving in an active mission. Individual universities establish the terms and conditions for the scholarship including value, duration and application process.
