January 23, 2009

On Friday, the University of Alberta's board of governors approved a 4.1% increase in tuition, and an 8% increase in residence rent. The vote was met with protest by a group of students donning red scarves symbolizing a student union-led movement called Restricted Access -- a broad initiative to raise awareness about PSE accessibility issues in Alberta.
