Save Campus Saint-Jean

Save Campus Saint-Jean

September 11, 2020

Below is a column that should be required reading for everyone in Edmonton Strathcona.

We risk losing Campus Saint-Jean, a key centre of learning and defense of francophone rights in our back yard. The U of A is thinking of selling the land and moving the campus. Or, even worse, we might lose it to the University of Ottawa.

If elected MP for Edmonton Stratchcona – I pledge you this: if I’m not successful in attracting funding to keep Campus Saint-Jean where it is, I will step down after my first term as MP.

That is how crucial I believe that the Campus Saint-Jean is to our riding, and to our country.

CAN I ASK A FAVOUR?


Before asking you for money for our Edmonton Strathcona campaign, we’re in the final stages of paying off expenses from my 2020 Conservative leadership campaign, which was cut short in early March by the COVID-19 pandemic.
