Support for Universities

The Globe and Mail - Support for Universities

This is an open letter from the president at the University of Waterloo. It makes me angry that my education is at stake here, and the government is busy picking fights with other parties. Tax cuts are nice, but I remember Larry Smith (economics professor extraordinare) once said in ECON 101, "Society wants tax cuts, and society wants social benefits. It doesn't add up!" Show me the balanced budget - I don't mind paying for it, if I can see my money going somewhere.

October 2nd, I have no idea who to vote for. In fact, I don't think it matters - students are often shafted by the government anyway. I guess this explains the general apathy in the new generation of young adults..
