Urquhart is a long-time faculty member in UW's fine arts department, and was honoured just a few months ago with the Order of Canada. Today's talk, which is open to all, is the annual public lecture sponsored by the Friends of the Library. A reception follows in the Dana Porter Library, where selections from the Tony Urquhart papers, now held in the library's rare books room, are on display.
In remarks that a Canadian Press report called "unscripted", Harris said that if his Tories win the June 8 election, his government will make multi-million dollar cutbacks to college and university funding, and will increase tuition fees to make up some of the lost revenue. He also said his government would abolish tenure: "Guaranteed employment, whether you're pulling your weight or not, is a thing of the past."
The Canadian Federation of Students called his proposal for a fee increase "irresponsible". The Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations said his statement on tenure was "a total display of ignorance".

The ethics committee is made up of two staff, two students and two faculty members. Created under UW's Policy 33, the committee exists to advise on "the implementation of the principles" in the ethics policy, and "to deal with specific complaints arising under these principles". So most of its work is done in private, either in informal discussions or in formal hearings about complaints of ethics violations. It's currently chaired by Sally Gunz of the school of accountancy.
