Tuition: Screw the Young

According to the CBC and Statistics Canada, tuition has significantly outpaced inflation since 1990.

Sucks to be you.

What have baby boomers been doing with all the tax savings? Buying SUVs of course! I guess screw the environment to.

In New Brunswick, vote Liberal or NDP on September 18th.

Your comment makes absolutely no sense at all. Babyboomers and tax savings? Are you kidding.

How about the fact that babyboomers paid for their own tuiton (without loans) but with money either from their parents, or money they earned or a combination of both.

Perhaps you should try it. All of a sudden you are owed something?

I'm one of the people who enjoyed significantly lower tuition in the 90s. As a bonus, taxes (duty and income tax)have gone down since I graduated 10 years ago.

Hmmm... it's all relative - tuition was less in the 90's and so were salaries, cost of housing, etc.

Anybody remember the NDP . . . in BC . . . in the 1990's . . . freezing tuition . . . causing 4 year courses to become 5 year courses . . . shortages of seats in BC universities . . . shortages of everything.

If Universities were run more like a business and less like a marxist regeme . . . I am sure costs would go down and opportunities would increase.

The young are doing a pretty good job of screwing themselves . . . look around you, many can't think for themselves, can't hold a decent job, can't even get through high school.

What part of "tuition outpaced inflation" don't you understand?

Don't take my word for it, click on the Statistics Canada link.
