I am so proud of the students Quebec. Vive la liberte.I only wish our students had the nads to get our tuitions reduced.Our education system was built for the entitled . How many real smart people out there haven't gone to post secondary because of the financial burden . educating our society is the best investment we can possibly make.

You thought wrong. Most of the taxes paid in Canada are paid by the top 10%, and the rest by the middle class, while the bottom 40% hardly pay any taxes and draw out way more than they pay.

you understand though that they ultimately failed right? That while their nads or whatever got them a tuition reduction cancelation they are getting their funding cut now. That's bad and a direct result of the students not wanting to pay their "fair share"....LOL

the money has been taken from the universities ,we don't know where those cuts will take place they could cut something useless or redundant If it is removed from useless things it might not damage, usually when you remove expensive useless things from a system it works better.

That is true. They should remove all of the social work, psychology, general studies, political science and sociology classes. They would save a lot of money and cost the economy nothing.

So your parents didn't have the forsight to save for your tuition and split with no money. You find yourelf in single parent status. Is that not a choice you made or a choice you made not to change? For these reasons, all because of yourself or persons that should have been near and dear to you, you think we should all pony up and give your genius kid a free education?

If your kid is a genius he/she does not need free tuition. They need to apply for scholarships and bursuries. Student loans are also available. If they are smart and persue an in demand course of study, they will have no problems being successful. To say they cannot succeed without a handout is a diservice and insult to your child and nothing more than you being on welfare of a different kind.

I never chose to be a single parent life just happens sometimes it was the last thing i wanted .with all the scholarships and monies we've saved we still fall short ,not free cheaper I don't think we could be as good as France do you.jobs of any kind for youth are very hard to find .i see more seniors than kids in these ENTRY level jobs"hello welcome to walmart and would you like fries with that".Its very hard for those who have and have always had ,to see how hard it really is . its all black and white to people with money.but the truth is we will destroy our education system at our peril.when our people lack the skill to do the work it will be outsourced.we need the best and brightest not the most privileged.

You should move to any one of the Mediteranean Countries. Your attitude and sense of entitlment fit right in with their populations mindset and why they are all bankrupt. You'd have us follow that path.
Have had 4 kids and none of them ever had a problem finding part time and summer jobs.....ever. They also were not too pround to flip burgers, deliver papers, wash toilets or dig ditches. All of them by the way have either completed or are still attending post secondary education with minimal support from ma and pa. There is no excuse under our current system that would make further education inaccessible to anyone......your child included. Quit whining for a handout.

who really is the one who is greedy and selfish in this scenario though? The one who is advocating that you roll up your sleeves and take advantage of all the different kinds of help that exists like scholerships and bursaries, or the ones that just want to cry and whine and demand that everything is free. There's a lot of people posting on this forum who have walked many miles in your shoes, and are currently whearing the same shoes as you. The difference is that they don't feel they are entitled to or should get any special treatment. Only the truly selfish expect that.

i still think it is not me. I want this for all the poor kids of canada to make their lives better and not have to start life with so much debt.I am not crying or begging but working as hard as it takes to get my kid there .I'd just like not to see him 30 thousand in debt when he starts his first job.The thought of going into great debt for education has discouraged many poor family from getting the best education.So ba humbug all you scrooges what are your motivations for not liking this cost freeze.is it your money?and the fear you may lose more from taxes in the future to education for the poor.
