Recently, sixteen University of Regina Professors sent an open letter to Vianne Timmons, President of the University of Regina, protesting Project Hero, a program that waives tuition fees and provides one thousand dollars per year to "“dependents of Canadian Forces personnel deceased while serving with an active mission”.
letter goes on to accuse Project Hero of glorifying Canadian imperialism in
Afghanistan, and demands that this vital program be cancelled. These professors believe that Project Hero is
a tool to stifle debate on military issues in Canada.
Please tell the University of Regina that this financial assistance program is not to stifle debate, but to provide education to those that might not otherwise be able to access it.
By signing this petition you are showing your support for Project Hero and believe that is has just as much of a right to assist students in financial need as any other scholarship or award provided by the University of Regina.

Edward J. Robbins, Canada5 years ago Comments: I think the sixteen profs should find employment elsewhere, perhaps in a Country where their letter would be looked at a little more seriously, and raise more than a petition.
Barry Burn, Canada5 years ago Comments: I wonder if those Professors would look at it differently if the had a front row in an active mission instead of sitting on there Buts trying to figure out what there next bum idea could be.
Ann Blakeley, Canada5 years ago Comments: For Professors to activily campaign to deny children of our fallen soldiers further education is an absolute disgrace.
