TO THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO:
WHEREAS, the University of Guelph’s Kemptville and Alfred Campuses are two of Ontario’s outstanding post-secondary agricultural schools;
WHEREAS, these campuses have delivered specialized and high-quality programs to generations of students from agricultural communities across Ontario and the future success of the region’s agri-food industry depends on continuing this strong partnership; and
WHEREAS, regional campuses like those in Kemptville and Alfred ensure the agri-food industry has access to the knowledge, research and innovation that are critical for Ontario to remain competitive in this rapidly changing sector.
THEREFORE, we the undersigned, petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario as follows: That Premier Wynne in her dual capacity as Minister of Agriculture and Food act immediately to reverse the University of Guelph’s shortsighted and unacceptable decision to close its Kemptville and Alfred Campuses.
