Concerns About First Nations University of Canada

First Nation chiefs in Canada are concerned about the future of the First Nations University of Canada since the suspensions of three top officials and the firing of a university vice-president. Gary Merasty, Grand chief of the Prince Albert Grand Councils in the Saskatchewan province, worried about the damage the controversy has caused to students and to the university's reputation. "We want to ensure that the integrity, the credibility and the pride that we have in our institutions is first and foremost," Merasty said. "Those institutions represent our future." Merasty has called for a task force of industry experts to look at how First Nations University of Canada should operate successfully in the future.
