Indeed this is a principle question after all.
This is history repeating.
I was in College from 1992 to 1994, and again in 2004 to 2006 and in these two spans, we had something like 3 (or maybe more) student strikes for all
the same reasons (tuition hikes).
We have seen prices increase for our gas, food and whatnot. Soon or later, education is bound to follow. We can't realistically keep the tuition fees
frozen forever, can we ? And every time this subject is brought up, BOOM a student strike.
Increase in tuition fees is a sad but normal part of life (not that I'm all for it).
But there will always be those that are all for protesting, its part of the student "experience" after all...
Oh, I almost forgot. Jean Charest can get bent.
