The MPP for Nickel Belt believes the Wynne Liberals face growing pressure to create a Francophone university. France Gelinas says Ontario already has numerous French elementary and high schools and two Francophone colleges. She says it’s now time to create a board of governors that would determine the make-up of such a school.
Gelinas believes a Francophone university can be modelled after College Boreal. Boreal has numerous satellite offices scattered across Ontario in addition to Sudbury housing the main campus and administration. Gelinas says a student rally last Thursday at Queens Park pushing for the post-secondary school went very well.
