Yeah, Tuition is ******** expensive, trust me.

Although I'm not all sure it's Clark's fault.

Garbage.

No one answers any questions and just a horrible selection of candidates.

It's like having to choose between Ebbett, Sestito, Glass and Oreskovich.

Meh I don't think it's too bad frankly.

On my tuition I typically get 1/4th* back on tax refund every year and it's no where near as crazy as most countries with higher-education.

That's somewhat true.

Like I said, I'm completely neutral right now.

As a first time voter, I'm all ears.

Yeah, it's laughable how affordable it is. Especially if you go from a college to a university for the first two years. Maybe 3,500 per year at a college before university.

Speaking as someone who has gone through that the last two years.

At least it's not the USA where you come out with $100,000 in debt (aside from community colleges).

Personally, I don't see a problem with tuition fees right now. Money back into the economy, anyways.

Exactly. I get harassed walking through my campus about how tuition needs to be lowered. I just laugh at them. I come from a very low income family and I'm able to afford it.

yeah it's not that bad compared to some places. look at some of the financial statements for the local colleges and universities and the government is already subsidizing a lot of the costs

Funny how screwed the Liberals are. Shame, I voted for them last couple of times and they lied like crazy. Worried about the NDP though...

lol Cummins: "WE WILL MAKE MORE AGENCIES TO EXAMINE SPENDING!!"

F-off.

It's a race between the lesser of two evils. Hard to choose, really.
