SaskParty Ripped Over Aboriginal Education Funding

The Canadian Federation of Students has given the Saskatchewan Party a failing grade over its policy on education funding for Aboriginal post-secondary students.


CFS spokesman Mike Burton adds neither the NDP nor the Liberals go far enough in their calls for Aboriginal access to post-secondary education funding.


However, he says at least they mention it in their platforms — unlike the Saskatchewan Party.


For the record, the NDP received a grade of “C”, while the Liberals got a “C-“.


Burton says increasing access to post-secondary education for Aboriginal people should be considered a priority for this province.


He says Aboriginal people need that improved access if the province is to thrive.
