Hell no, we won't pay!
Our community needs to step up and let the President of CNC understand that pay parking at our local campus is not a viable opportunity to create income for the college. City Council passed this resolution at our council meeting this past Monday:
. THAT Quesnel City Council directs the Mayor to forward a letter to the College of New Caledonia Board of Directors and Administration requesting that the decision to institute pay-parking at the North Cariboo Community Campus (a shared campus space where the College of New Caledonia and the University of Northern British Columbia are located) be retracted, as CNC's decision to implement pay-parking was made unilaterally and without consultation, does not align with our community's practice of not charging for parking (there is not a single location within the City of Quesnel that has pay-parking), will present an unreasonable burden on businesses and facilities in the area of the campus, and represents an additional cost burden on students.
Please sign this petition if you agree and forward to your friends.
