Alberta budget affects U of C

The recent provincial budget will fund construction of the new Childrens’ Hospital on the University of Calgary West Campus, and new health research buildings at the U of C and University of Alberta, according to university officials. The two universities will share $210 million in funding.

“Both universities faced the same problem, in that we had simply run out of space,” said Faculty of Medicine Dean Dr. Grant Gall.

Students were less than impressed.

“My concern is the province is funding all these feel-good buildings when there’s no money to maintain them,” said Students’ Union President Matt Stambaugh.
