PQ delegates vote in favour of tuition freeze

February 11, 2013

At the Parti Quebecois' convention this weekend, delegates voted in favour of a university tuition freeze. The PQ government has, until now, only favoured indexing tuition fees to the cost of living. The broadly-worded resolution leaves the government with some wiggle room at the PSE summit taking place later this month. Higher Education Minister Pierre Duchesne says the government will try to accommodate the spirit of the PQ resolution. A recent poll found that the majority of responding Quebecers would favour seeing university tuition fees indexed, not frozen or eliminated. CTV | Montreal Gazette
