If you don't mind me asking, what program is it? I too am concerned about the effects the funding cuts are having on our health care and education.


Your distraction is genuine. You are going in the right direction and keeping your slow-growing perennial seed shows your love for gardening.

Hi Jeff,
It is the engineering transfer program. To be clear, they are still saying it is not official as it needs to be approved by our Board of Governors etc. But there will be more programs announced shortly.
The funny thing is that this is a high demand program - we already have almost 600 applications for only 100 spots this coming fall! We were not a "redundant" program because we served a specific need that was not met by UofC and UofA. However, the program was small and not within the vision of MRU, so an easy target.
When this kind of slash and burn budget is announced with so little notice, of course institutions are forced to make decisions that will adversely impact Alberta and in this case, young would-be engineering students in Calgary and the surrounding area. This impact will be felt for the next few years and perhaps for much longer.
Thanks for asking!


Really your daughter provided nice idea regarding Plant sees. Plant the number of seeds at the regular time.


Look on the bright side. You could get severance, you can sell your place for a good sum due to Calgary's tight real estate market and then move somewhere with a nicer climate!

Ha ha! There is that possibility, I suppose! But yes, I am trying to look on the bright side. It is an opportunity.
