The situation facing First Nations University is very serious. We stand to lose one third to one half of our funding in the next few weeks and may not be able to continue operating. Please take some time to write your Member of Parliament expressing your opinion on this dire situation. If you can, send the letter by post, fax, and e-mail to be sure that it gets to your MP in time. See the list of contact information for Saskatchewan MPs below, and also see our blog at https://fnuniv.wordpress.com/ for more information.

You can use the provided Model Letter to politicians (but be sure to customize it for federal/provincial and to include your own sentiments).

We would appreciate it if you provided us with a copy of your letter: fnuniv@hotmail.com. And please forward a link to this request to your friends and colleagues: https://fnuniv.wordpress.com/2010/02/25/action-01/ .

In the StarPhoenix of February 12, 2010, Doug Cuthand writes:

“The timing of the provincial and federal announcements is passing strange. Both came within a week of each other. Both failed to recognize that the chiefs had voted for change and the process was still unfolding. It’s clear the two governments acted in collusion.”

“It’s as if they had to hurry up to destroy the university before it had a chance to reform. This is not an issue of money despite what the governments may say. The provincial contribution of $5.2 million and the federal contribution of $7 million is chump change to the governments. The federal budget is close to $200 billion, so this won’t make a dent.”

Indian and Northern Affairs minister Chuck Strahl says First Nations University should be more accountable, but he announced his funding cut while Parliament is prorogued, so Parliament cannot question his actions.  Where’s the accountability in that?

The faculty at First Nations University are particularly concerned about accountability.  We are, and always have been, accountable to our students, our funding agencies, and our degree-granting institutions and accrediting bodies.  Our governance and administration are making moves to become more accountable.  Now it is time for the Government of Canada to be accountable.  Do not make decisions affecting the livelihoods of hundreds of people and the futures of thousands of students while Parliament is prorogued.  Restore funding to First Nations University now!

Write to Chuck Strahl expressing your opinion!
