So yesterday marked the 100th day of the student strike that has been taking place in Montreal and all over Quebec. Quebec students are fighting to keep tuition costs down and university accessible for everyone. Average full-time tuition fees in Quebec for 2012 are $2,519 vs. Alberta (where I went to school) they are $5,662.
As an ex-student and a maybe soon to be new student… I think the cost of going to school is getting out of hand. Had something like this taken places when I was in school I would have been all over it. I think the protesters are doing the right thing and I respect them. I don’t think enough people stand up to the powers at be when they feel they are being wronged. Most people just take it and believe nothing can be done.
