Francophone universities denounce Charter

UPDATE: Université de Montréal says it's not against the charter

The Université de Sherbrooke and Université de Montreal have joined McGill University and Bishop's University in the outright rejection of the Marois government's proposed Charter of Values.

Sherbrooke University President Luce Samoisette says the proposal makes no sense and goes against the very nature of an educational institution.

Le Devoir reports this morning that following an assembly yesterday, officials announced that the Charter does not meet it's needs.

Concordia University has refused to take an official stand, saying it will make it's position clear at National Assembly hearings that will get underway in the New Year.

Laval University, UQAM and the ’Université du Québec have not yet stated their positions on the Charter.

    Of couse they will be against it, and I am sure the others will go along soon enough.
    Oh and this has nothing to do with the charter is has to do with numbers and money.
    Can you imagine how many of these students the schools will loose and the money involved in tutitions if the decide to go to where they are wanted, instead of coming here with the PQ and their racist ideas.
