The University of Manitoba was once in talks with Beijing’s Hanban (the Confucius Institute Headquarters) regarding opening a Confucius Institute on campus. Due to the strong opposition from the University of Manitoba Faculty Association, including outspoken faculty member professor Terry Russell, as well as McMaster University’s closure of its CI, the administration of the university eventually gave up the plan on hosting a CI.
