Cuts Coming to College of the North Atlantic?

 

David Brazil, Advanced Education and Skills Critic for the Official Opposition Office, is questioning if the Ball administration is making program and job cuts at College of the North Atlantic.

 

Brazil said the official opposition office has been told that there have been decisions made with respect to discontinuing certain programs at campuses, and that layoffs are underway.

 

Brazil is calling on the province’s Minister of Advanced Education and Skills to update the province on any changes the government is planning, or has already made, to the College’s programming.

 

“Open government demands a two-way flow of information – not just consulting with people, but also keeping people informed about the choices under consideration so they have an opportunity to shape decisions and pinpoint poor choices before they are made,” said Brazil.
