Students petition to reinstate U of O profs lost to budget cuts - Eric Davidson, Fulcrum

Two University of Ottawa professors have been informed that their contracts will not be renewed for the 2017-18 academic year because of budget constraints. The professors, Raphaël Canet and Pierre Beaudet, are both members of the School of International Development and Globalization (SIDG). Canet said their contracts are set to end in June, and that the university has said they will not renew them. According to Canet, the university cited budget cuts as the reason for the decision. In response to news that their professors would not be returning, several students in SIDG created a petition to get them back. The petition is an abridged form of a longer document, which will be sent to Frémont asking to have the professors reinstated.
