Student plaintiff talks about college class action lawsuit

June 11, 2007

“At least if students in the future don’t have to pay these fees – and are not lied to – then rock on,” says Amanda Hassum, one of two Ontario students who have filed a class action lawsuit against the province’s community colleges.  Hassum is currently a Conestoga College advertising student.  The second representative plaintiff is Dan Roffey, a student at George Brown College in Toronto.  Both feel they represent thousands of students hit with rising ancillary fees, such as a $210 “information technology” fee that Hassum received, despite tuition regulation.  The Cambridge Times
