Saskatchewan parties square off over education

October 16, 2007

The first week of campaigning in Saskatchewan's provincial election focused on 2 main issues, one of which was PSE.  The provincial NDP has promised to cut tuition in the province by $1,000 next year, on top of a tuition freeze in place since 2005. Tuition would rise with the rate of inflation in future.  The Saskatchewan Party has proposed a less costly plan that would offer graduates a $20,000 tuition rebate over 7 years -- if they stay and work in the province.
