UVic writing students reveal green job cutbacks

In Apri 2008, Gordon Campbell personally launched a $3 million government initiative to give young people "the chance to be ambassadors for our climate's future." But, seven months later, as University of Victoria professional writing students Nicole Garcia, Evan Pivnick, Justin Bedi and Nathan Caddell exclusively discovered, the funding for that so-called Youth Climate Leadership Alliance was cut. The Tyee has published the results of their investigation today, one of several undertaken by students this past semester as part of the writing department's advanced journalism course.

Don't care for the Tyee, the Tyee doesn't care for anybody who defends the BCLibs... but clearly you've taught your students well. Through, balanced and nicely done.

I do not like the BCLiberals or the NDP and I do not need a newspaper to tell me that, just look at what the Liberals are doing, they are totally confused, many should not be ministers!

Sean,
Thanks for finding venue for these UVic students' writing. It's evident that they have learned their craft well.
