March 23, 2010

The Right Honourable Stephen Harper
Prime Minister of Canada

Dear Sir,

We, the signatories, are aware of the circumstances surrounding the alleged financial mismanagement of the First Nations University of Canada (FNUC) in Regina.

We believe that the survival of FNUC is vital for the expansion and diversity of the Canadian cultural mosaic, and this unique institution should continue to function for the benefit of not only Canada but also of the world. Moreover, we maintain that FNUC is a crucial venue for raising the educational standards of the Canada-wide aboriginal community.

We oppose measures that may compromise FNUC’s operations, such as the curtailing of funds which would probably lead to its closure. We believe a solution acceptable to all parties can be reached by addressing the problem of “mismanagement” through the co-operation of the Federal and Saskatchewan governments, and the Assembly of First Nations.

Efforts to guarantee the continued operations of FNUC is a Canadian moral duty and a just cause.

Respectfully,

Action #5: Angus Reid poll

Please take the Angus Reid poll about First Nations University.

Note: the question is rather confusing so read it carefully before answering. “Should the Saskatchewan Party government pull funding from the First Nations University of Canada?” A negative answer may promote a positive outcome for our institution (and vice versa).
