March 15, 2016

Quebec Premier Phillipe Couillard has stated that the upcoming provincial budget will show that education spending is a primary priority for the government. According to the Montreal Gazette, the premier has insisted that Quebec did not cut education spending over the last few years, although he admits that restraints have created “difficult situations” in Quebec’s school system. “We now have the financial capacity to do more for our education system. We will work with our universities to ensure they remain competitive and create a fulfilling learning experience for their students on and off campuses," said Couillard. Montreal Gazette | CJAD
