Some questions are being asked about the $9000 UQAM spent on tickets to a speech by a man who can usually be heard on campus for free: the rector.
Robert Proulx addressed the Canadian Club last month.
University insiders have told the Journal de Montreal that the administration and the school's foundation were determined to see that Proulx spoke to a packed hall, so they purchased more than a hundred tickets to the event.
The Canadian Club admits the breakfast event was better attended than others in the series.
The theme of Proulx's speech was the dynamic relationship between the university and the city.
