University of British Columbia professors voted decisively to urge the university’s board of governors to sell off the school’s endowment investments in fossil fuel stocks within the next five years.
The UBC Faculty Association said Tuesday that 62 per cent of faculty voted in favour of the fossil fuel divestment.

“Climate change¬†presents an urgent crisis for humanity,” he added.
