Statement by Ontario NDP Advanced Education and Skills Development Critic Peggy Sattler

Ontario NDP Advanced Education and Skills Development Critic Peggy Sattler issued the following statement:

“New Democrats have long called on the Liberal government to put a hard cap on public sector CEO salaries and to make sure that our precious public dollars are used to enrich the learning experience of students instead of enriching executives.  

Unfortunately, today’s announcement by the Minister of Advanced Education and Skills Development has more to do with insulating the Liberal government against criticism than it does with prioritizing classroom needs and investing in post-secondary education for Ontarians.”
