To find out where each of the major parties stands on issues that matter to faculty across Ontario, OCUFA prepared a questionnaire. The questionnaire has been sent to the leaders of all the major political parties.
So far, we have received responses from the NDP and Liberals. We hope you will review their responses to see where they stand on OCUFA’s three priority areas for the 2018 provincial election that will support high-quality postsecondary education for students: investing in strong public funding for universities, supporting faculty renewal, and delivering fairness for contract faculty.
We will post responses from the other parties as they become available. The questionnaire could also be sent to local candidates, and inform questions for candidates at the door or at all-candidates debates in your riding.
Further analysis of the party platforms, including commentary on the party leader questionnaire responses, will be released in the coming week.
