Canadian university dumps cystic fibrosis fundraising as the condition mainly affects white boys and men
As the Carleton University Students' Association prepares to revisit its controversial decision to drop a cystic fibrosis charity as the beneficiary of its annual Shinearama fundraiser, students at the Ottawa university have taken to Facebook to vent their frustrations over how and why such a motion could be passed.
They claimed that they wanted to pull out of raising money for cystic fibrosis after discovering that it mainly affects white boys and men.
This facebook petition has been created to call for the resignation of those responsible for the decision.
