Doug Ford's Tories overreached. The courts overruled them. But students are still paying the price - 2020-01-22
When Ross Romano went to university, he ran for student council so that he and his classmates could run their own show free from outside interference.
Now he's the cabinet minister in charge of colleges and universities, and part of a provincial government that's determined to rein in the student government he once belonged to.
Romano's not the only former student politician who grew up to be a professional politician in Ontario's Progressive Conservative government. Education Minister Stephen Lecce, responsible for kindergarten through Grade 12, was president of his student council at Western University.
