Today the second session of the forty-first Legislature ended with the Pallister government ramming through measures that will damage the future of Manitoba families.
Government legislation will raise tuition for Manitoba students by 5% plus the rate of inflation annually. Families will be forced to pay hundreds of additional dollars every year to afford an education. The average student in Manitoba today pays $4,058 in tuition plus the cost of ancillary fees and books. By the end of the Pallister mandate, that same student will be paying approximately $5000 plus books and fees.
