Double standard students

Dave Killion — October 17, 2011

Canada has a student loan program which is once again about to hit its funding limit. The Canadian Federation of Students isopposed to having the lending limit increased… they want the money to just be given to them

“This country is effectively bankrupting a generation before they even get to their first job interview,” Dubois said at a news conference in Ottawa, standing alongside a digital counter showing the total student debt in Canada.

The CFS says the government should provide grants to provinces to reduce tuition fees in lieu of tax credits to students and convert some student loans to non-repayable grants. Dubois said the system could act in the same way that the federal government provides provinces with health-care funding.”

Bailouts and subsidies? You call yourselves students, but you beg like corporations!
