The controversial RU-Pass referendum results will stand. Ryerson’s Election Procedures Committee (EPC) ruled 4-1 against formal challenges brought forward by students unhappy with the RSU’s campaign.
The Ontario government is rejecting Ryerson’s bid to fund the newest law school in the province, The Globe and Mail reported.
Following a review of the proposal, Training, Colleges and Universities Minister Merrilee Fullerton, decided that the Conservatives don’t think another law school is needed in the province. This was based on a number of factors, including dwindling job prospects and a surplus of law graduates.
“Our government has a mandate to restore respect for taxpayers and tax dollars. Part of that process is making sure that the government’s services and programs are efficient, effective, and conducive to job creation,” Fullerton said in a statement provided to The Globe.
The campaign advocating for students to vote Yes in last week’s RU-Pass referendum was partly based on misleading information, an undercover Ryersonian investigation has found.
