Over the past 20 years, the federal government has cut annual funding for h=
education by $4 billion, from an historical high of $8 billion. These cuts,=

for universities and colleges/CEGEPS across Canada.
-Rising tuition fees and soaring student debt (meaning less access for
-Crumbling university infrastructures
-Growing classroom sizes
-Growing privatisation of our campuses
The federal government has seen record surpluses over the past few years; t=
is more than enough money to reinvest in education and ensure there is a
dedicated federal transfer of $8 billion for education every year.

next televised leadership debate. Come out and make sure they hear our voic=
and recognize that education funding is a priority in Canada!
