I currently attend Cegep (Kind of like community college in Quebec. It's mandatory if you plan on going into university, and it replaces grade 12 and freshman year) and there's a bunch of talks for a student strike to try and prevent a planned tuition increase of 500$ for University in Quebec. Basically, we have the least expensive tuition fees in all of Canada at about $3000 a semester after taxes and fees and all those things, but the government plans on increasing it by 500$ a semester. I feel that this increase is almost insignificant seeing as it's going to make the average education cost an extra $1500, which with student loans, can be paid back very quickly. The proposed strike is just going to be a 3 day break from school which is going to have to be made back at the end of the semester. Does anyone feel that a student strike for something like this is actually justified? I don't think that anyone in the government is actually going to take it seriously, and I'm going to have to skip a lecture tomorrow just to vote against it. With such inexpensive schooling already, do people even have the right to complain about a small increase?
