Commentary: I recently wrote to the mayor of Ottawa about the high price in adult bus passes for the city even for post-secondary students that are over 19 and don’t go to Ottawa U or Carleton, and he replied back with a long standard email that he probably has sent to others who expressed their concerns about the student bus fares, that illustrates some decent points.The other post-secondary schools in Ottawa basically just need to take the necessary steps to partner with OC Transpo to have the UPass available to their students as well – so OC Transpo isn’t actually being a big old dick and just discriminating against older students, but they still suck a little bit when it comes to buses being on time and being not crowded.
Next, my issue is with universities and their tuition amounts. They’re pretty fucking high just for homegrown students, but international students’ tuitions are literally three times the amount of Canadians’. Why is that the case? Is it because Canada doesn’t want an influx of immigrants attending their schools, so they stem the flow of immigrants by making them pay shitloads more for their education? If so, that’s not a good stem, the universities can just not accept them, and at least charge twice the amount, not three times. Does anyone have thoughts on this?
Anyways, I hope your day is filled with happy ballsacks and good cheese.
