I am not sure if any of you have heard of this, but it is the drama of my home town currently, and I am interested in what you think of it. Essentially the University of Regina (one I attend) as well as many other Canadian Universities gives scholarships to children of Deceased Canadian Soldiers. Just recently 16 professors at the UofR spoke out against the scholarship. Here is their letter: http://www.cbc.ca/canada/saskatchewan/story/2010/03/25/sk-wall-scholarship-1003.html#socialcomments" [Broken] So yeah, the 16 professors are facing lots of criticism for their opinions. I guess I find it odd how a public and educational institution (where students are encouraged to form opinions about world issues) can I guess pick a side and say they support the war or show they value the war (even though that may not be their intention) especially since there can be kids from all over the world including Afghanistan because although the soldiers can be seen as heroes to Canadians, to others they can be seen as murderers. How would the students from Afghanistan feel if the public school they were attending gave this scholarship if maybe their father was killed by a Canadian soldier. Would it not make sense for an institution affiliated with the military to give out such a award? I believe that the children should receive help in some way for school I just do not know if the support should come from a public University. What do you think PF, lately I have just been hearing arguments filled with name calling and the such.. nothing of substance.
