On March 20, 2019, students at colleges and universities across Ontario walked out of classes in protest of several of Doug Ford’s regressive changes to education. The government’s controversial changes include the cuts to OSAP and the new, so-called Students Choice Initiative. We had a fantastic turnout in Vari Hall! ✊🏿🙌 Click here to view our photos!
The Student Choice Initiative will introduce a new opt-out period for students, which threatens funding for our students’ unions. Without predictable core funding for YUGSA, all graduate students will suffer the loss of our services and the operational funding that we provide for all departmental graduate students’ associations. We’re advocating as much as possible to protect the YUGSA, but we need your help!
Tell Doug Ford, Minister Merrilee Fullerton, and your MPP: Hands off OSAP and our students’ unions! E-mail them NOW: http://cfsontario.ca/action/ and follow We Are The Students YU for the latest updates.
