November 22, 2007

80% of Canadians feel that university tuition needs to be either lowered or frozen, according to a new national poll.  The Harris-Decima poll was sponsored by both the Canadian Association of University Teachers and the Canadian Federation of Students.  Apparently, 72% of Canadians feel that education will be either critical or important when deciding their vote in the next election, and 55% feel the most important PSE-related task for government should be lowering tuition.
