I speak French so please, apologize my bad English.I know that you may have already chosen your side on this conflict but maybe you haven’t got all
Let me begin by saying that there were a screening survey about this strike and the MAJORITY – 61%- are against students. (
Quebec tuition fees are almost the lowest in Canada(Newfoundland is lower but who lives there anyway?). Actually, each year since I can remember, they
were trying to increase tuition fees a little bit but every times, students came out and keep crying to keep fees frozen.
Don’t forget that some students won the right to go to school even if they are in strike as it isa fundamental need and some of them even pursue
their own student association because they won’t let them go to school. (In French only sorry :-/
Every times that the Quebec government istaking an action, there is a riot and they retract. This time, they are keeping the hard line. Well, it’s
about time. We have the highest tax rates. 5% Fed + 9.5% (Qc) which mean that I already pays 14.5% of taxes on everything. If tuition fees aren’t
increased, this means that I will have to pay for them and I think that I already give enough.
Yeah, right, they won’t have enough money for their IPhone and their brand new BMW but they will in a few years. They should have a budget
Oh, I almost forgot, they are talking about freedom… Sorry? What? And mine? The freedom of using my money at my will?
Revolution? For what? We already have free access to healthcare, no toll road, etc... I think that these kids are whining without even thinking of
what they already have. They take everything for granted and think that the world can be a better place than we already have. We should drop them in
Afghanistan for a month. Now they would be complaining for something real.
Let’s see, 2 731$ for a fulltime session. How about yours ATS member? I wonder how much is an Harvard session
