Faculty to Suspend Picketing for Funeral

The Mount Allison Faculty Association will suspend picketing from 1:30 to 3:00 PM tomorrow (February 2). This suspension is to mark the funeral of Mr. John Wilson, a retired member of the Board of Regents of Mount Allison University. Mr. Wilson, former head of Atlantic Industries in Dorchester, N.B. was a long-time member of the Board and served Mount Allison faithfully for several years. MAFA President George De Benedetti commented that the suspension of picketing was “out of respect for Mr. Wilson and consideration for his family. MAFA members extend sincere condolences to members of the Wilson family”. Picketing, currently in its 12th day, will resume after Mr. Wilson’s funeral.
