February 2021 Newsletter 2.0

APTPUO’s official statement in response to the interview with Rector and Vice-Chancellor Jacques Frémont.

Five months after the ‘n’ word incident, Vice-Chancellor Jacques Frémont looks back on the events in an interview with Alain Gravel on Radio-Canada’s radio show, Les faits d’abord.

The Association was shocked to hear the false information reported by the University regarding the situation from last October. We wish to inform you that we responded to the interview with a statement that was released to the press on Sunday, February 14.

We invite you to read the official statement of the Association here.
