McGill shocked, upset by budget cuts

Posted By: Laura Casella · 12/14/2012 12:48:00 PM

McGill is reacting to news that the PQ government is demanding universities in total slash 120-million dollars from their budgets in the next four months.

It is a request the McGill University's board of governors deems unreasonable and unrealistic.

"I was shocked frankly," says Kip Cobbett, chair of the board. "The entire board is very concerned, and upset."

He says the government's demand to cut $20-million by April is nearly impossible and it will have serious consequences on the quality of education.

"It will mean drastic cuts to services. It will put in jeopardy our ability to provide a quality education to students."

The board has passed a motion demanding the government back off. Concordia University's administration is also very concerned.

    Here is an idea for McGill. Stop being so shocked and revisit the salaries you are giving your professors. Certain do not deserve that. Not to mention the administrative staff. Take a look Kip where you can cut BEFORE you cut services to the students that are paying your very inflated salaries.
    I mean come on Doctors don't make the salaries some of your professors are making.
