Open Letter to University of Alberta
To: David Turpin, President and vice-chancellor of the University of Alberta
David, I understand that the University of Alberta has decided to award an Honorary Degree to David Suzuki.
I have tried over the years to support the University as a whole, the Law School and the Golden Bears Hockey team. In part, I am able to do this because of the support my community provides me, and in part because of my employment in an industry related to the energy industry.
I view this recent action by the University of Alberta as showing a high level of disrespect to this industry, while ignoring its contributions to our Province. Like others, I hope the U of A reverses this action while it can.
