The Woolwich Observer - - COMMENT -

“High tu­ition fees and stu­dent debt dis­pro­por­tion­ately im­pact stu­dents from marginal­ized com­mu­ni­ties who are more likely to grap­ple with fi­nan­cial bar­ri­ers in­clud­ing In­dige­nous stu­dents, racial­ized stu­dents, stu­dents with dis­abil­i­ties, stu­dent par­ents and in­ter­na­tional stu­dents. It is time for gen­uine re­newal in post-sec­ondary ed­u­ca­tion, and that means hon­our­ing treaty obli­ga­tions to In­dige­nous learn­ers, elim­i­nat­ing tu­ition fees and tak­ing se­ri­ous mea­sures to re­duce stu­dent debt.”
