Women's Education des femmes, Sept. 1989 - Vol. 7, No. 3
Authors: Linda McDonald
In this article, written in 1989, changes made by the Department of Indian and Northern Affairs (DIAND) to post-secondary education funding guidelines are discussed. The changes embittered First Nations people and resulted in protests across the country. The controversy left the Canadian public confused and unsure what to think about the issue. With media reports of large sums of money given "gratis" for a seemingly indeterminate number of years for native post-secondary education, many Canadians reacted angrily and denounced the policy as unfair.
