Alumni pulling financial support
I am appalled the university would even consider giving this degree to someone who has maligned, denigrated and in fact made money on decrying Alberta’s oil industry
Suzuki has been funded by foreign, special-interest environmental groups, who have a narrow focus with no regard to the livelihoods of a large portion of Alberta’s populace.My father came to this country in 1937 with no education and his fondest wish was that both of his daughters attend university, which we did. My father’s ability to work hard and send us to the university was aided immeasurably by Alberta’s oil-driven economy.
That economy has funded many social and other programs, benefiting not only Albertans but all of Canada.
My husband and I and our three grown children have a total of nine degrees, all from the University of Alberta.
We have supported various initiatives at the U of A, but we will not be contributing any further support.
