Quebec students , a spolied lot

Quebec students went on strike to protest minor increases in tuition. Quebec syudents, by the grace of Alberta oil money, pay the lowest tuitions in Canada. The Prince Arthur Herald has a good piece on the strike, which many students including those at my alma mater, McGill, did not attend. Supporting such low tuitions is a direct subsidy to the wealthy. A funny thing for socialists to support.


La Arts Undergraduate Society of McGill University (AUS) tenait mardi soir dernier une assemblée générale. Parmi les questions débattues se trouvait une motion de grève. Les étudiants de la faculté étaient appelés à se prononcer en faveur ou contre une grève d’un jour pour protester contre la hausse des frais de scolarité de 1 625$ sur 5 ans. Cette grève a lieu aujourd’hui.



Il faut saluer le climat démocratique dans lequel a été voté ce débrayage. L’assemblée était clairement noyautée par la frange radicale de la communauté étudiante de McGill qui rêve de mettre un portrait de Karl Marx dans la cafétéria du Shatner Building. Cette frange, réputée pour être friande de démocratie et de pouvoir au peuple, semblait pressée de faire avancer son agenda. Après avoir écourté prématurément la période de question sur la motion de grève, l’assemblée a voté pour qu’il n’y ait aucun débat sur la motion et a appelé au vote. Il va de soi que l’enjeu fait l’unanimité. À quoi bon écouter les moutons noirs qui sont en faveur de la hausse ?

Quebecers have to be the most myopic, out of touch, entitled tribe in the country. The leaders of that corrupt Province have done a masterful job of keeping the populace as stupid and isolated from reality as possible. It's a safe bet to say that the majority of these entitled nit wits has no idea that the west of Canada pays for their entitled myopic lives. Reality is a bitch!

Students the country over are very concerned with rising tuition fees as it is a real concern for them. Yes perhaps Que students have it easier, and yes, that is in small part to the ROC paying into equalization. But it just isn't Alberta oil money.
Ontario contributes far more money than anyone, so knock off the silly slags.

And with all due respect, you post a blog mocking students with so many spelling mistakes leaves one with a question...what did you do at McGill ?
Irony....

Looking forward to renegotiating transfer payments in 2014. I hope that it will be a huge bun fight! Transfer payments should be restricted to the bare minimum social programs (agreed to by ALL provinces), as intended. Deeply subsidized university education, daycare programs, and fancy IVF and other "health" procedures should not apply to any calculations.
