Did Doug Ford consult any students for his "For the Students" plan? - 2019-01-19
Yes — but just the alt-right ones.
On January 17th, 2019, Doug Ford's government announced a new funding framework for Ontario's post-secondary education system that, in addition to throwing students further into debt, includes a policy called the "Student Choice Initiative" which will allow students to opt-out of ancillary fees.
As Nora Loreto has written about elsewhere, this move is potentially catastrophic: "If implemented, this would severely weaken, if not kill students' unions, clubs, associations, services and campus media like radio or the campus press."
