An Ontario court's rebuke of the Ford government's "student choice initiative" means full funding can be restored to vital clubs and on-campus services, post-secondary student leaders say.

While they did not know how soon that could happen, "we're hoping the fees will go back into regular collection as soon as it's possible," said Kayla Weiler of the Ontario branch of the Canadian Federation of Students.

"I think particularly of food banks, and how they're unable to budget for the upcoming semester because of the Student Choice Initiative."
