Wow, the average undergraduate tuition is $2,519 a year and the proposed hike is $254 per year over seven years. No wonder it hasn't really made headlines. Then again, they are kind of French so maybe they like to strike.

If you knew what is happening in Canada right now you would understand why the people in Quebec are protesting. The tuition fees are just the tip of the iceberg. Why should young people graduate from university with a huge debt load? If your parents are wealthy well it's ok but if your parents are poor or middle class forget it. Quebecers and I am one of them, as I was born and raised there, are different then other Canadians. We have always been more involved in causes and issues then other parts of Canada. I live on the West Coast now and it is a very different life style. I miss Montreal and my fellow Quebesquois. We are not kind of French, but the decendents of French settlers from !5th Century France. Quebecquois are French Canadians.

the upper crust will always find a good school, a tutor for their offspring. As the middle classes sink into debt and burble out of sight,not all will be lost.... the top will rescue some of the students to be nannies and change their bedpans. Nice to have servants that are bi-lingual.

Does anyone understand the politics in Quebec? It would be nice to know who's who and who does what to whom.
