Instead of proposing to axe a 30 per cent tuition discount for post-secondary students, whoever forms the next provincial government should make it available to more youth, says the president of the Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance.
“We feel that this is a policy that is regressive — a policy that is taking a step backwards in terms of investment,” said Jen Carter, referring to a campaign promise by Tim Hudak that a Progressive Conservative government would scrap the fee break.
Carter herself benefited from the tuition grant when her father became unemployed.
