With a strike by college faculty across Ontario underway, including at Algonquin College, there is more need than ever for students to have access to news.
Normally this information would be provided by Algonquin’s journalism students, who run the Algonquin Times newspaper. But the Students’ Association, which owns the Times, instructed the newspaper to be closed in the event of a strike.
This move broke precedent, as the newspaper had continued to publish and even print hard copy papers during the last faculty strike in 2006.
Although we cannot publish under the official Algonquin Times banner, we have launched this website to continue providing up-to-the-minute news and information for both students and staff at Algonquin College.
