The Post editorial board: Phil Fontaine’s cynical threat to protest the 2010 Winter OIympics in Vancouver

Posted: April 21, 2008, 12:52 PM by Marni Soupcoff

Phil Fontaine is no doubt speaking the truth when he says that the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver are likely to provide an occasion for aboriginal protest across Canada — and that this protest may, like the ongoing pro-Tibetan festival of chaos surrounding the Olympic torch, take disruptive forms. “We [Indians] find the Tibet situation compelling,” the Grand Chief of the Assembly of First Nations (AFN) said at a press conference Thursday, sending a coded message whose meaning is quite obvious.

Smarten Up, Mr. Premier, and Make Education a Priority

Canadian Federation of Students–BC

Wednesday, April 16, 2008

EDITORIAL– Gordon Campbell is playing politics with young people’s futures.

One year ago, the BC government received the Campus 2020 Report on BC’s post-secondary education system, recommending major investment in research, and equalization of participation in post-secondary education from Aboriginal students and those from low-income backgrounds. Yet, the government put it off for a year, and will continue to dawdle until this fall. Then, just as they were finalizing their budgets, colleges and universities got a nasty shock with a 2.6% cut to the funding they had been promised a month before in the provincial budget, on top of cutbacks to funding new student seats. With economic forecasts worsening, and an election in May 2009, it seems the Liberals needed a fall reserve for their pre-election funding announcements.
