The Saskatchewan government has announced it will not fund the First Nations University of Canada after April 1, saying it has lost confidence in the leadership of the institution.
The province's annual contribution to FNUC amounted to $5.2 million, or just over a fifth of the school's annual budget.
"Our government has lost confidence in the governance and management of First Nations University," Rob Norris, the provincial minister of advanced education, employment and labour, said in a statement.
There have been many allegations of fraud and abuse of funding in the upper echelons of the FNUC administation over the years, but I don't see why the university itself is being penalised. Why not investigate the corrupt individuals and charge them instead?
