Wpg Free Press: Pallister must put students first

October 13, 2016 — 

As the Winnipeg Free Press reports:

Education Minister Ian Wishart said this week his government was “certainly going to change” the way the MSBI money is used to fund student aid. He did not elaborate, but it seems pretty obvious the new government wants more of its MSBI money spent right away, and not squirrelled away in endowment funds. The University of Manitoba’s main endowment fund sits at $635 million, and produces about $10 million annually in scholarships and bursaries.
