PAML PETITION AGAINST MILITARY PARTNERSHIPS AT UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO
- by: PAML PAMO
- recipient: PAML PAMO, PEOPLE AGAINST MILITARIZATION OF LIFE
People Against Militarization of OISE struggled in 2004/05 with OISE/University of Toronto administration which wanted to partner with the military and military contractor in an international research project which involved four Toronto Junior Public Schools. We won this struggle, but found that UofT had no ethical guidelines regarding types and lines of research and institutional and research partnerships. PAMO transformed into People Against Militarization of Life and was successful in presenting two motions at UofT Governing Council Meeting on June 29, 2005. These motions will be dealt with in October 2005. We hope you join us in making these motions a constructive reality. You can further support by asking UofT's Governing Council members, chair, and secretary about the status of these motions and show your support for Ethics at UofT.
Canadian Federation of Students (ON) officially supports the two motions (CFS motion 2005/08:N23)
