The Political Panel from CBC News New Brunswick with Terry Seguin
Feb.18 Political Panel: University Funding
New Brunswick's 4 Universities are asking the province for 10.6 million dollars in Emergency Funding, that's in addition to the 230 million dollars the Universities already receive. U.N.B, U de M, Mount A and St. Thomas say they need the money because of shrinking enrollment and increasing costs connected to the pandemic. To talk about that this week on the panel: New Brunswick's Minister of Post Secondary Training and Labour Trevor Holder, Jacques Leblanc for the Liberals, Megan Mitton for the Green Party and Kris Austin the leader of the People's Alliance.
