University Tuition FeesPublished on 22 June 2015 by Senator Wilfred Moore (retired)
Hon. Wilfred P. Moore:
My question is also for the Leader of the Government in the Senate. Leader, I’m always wary when I hear about student organizations complimenting the government on the sums that are provided in the budget for student programs because I’m always thinking that they don’t want to upset anybody—we’ll be able to take what we can get here and move on, so we’ll flatter them and just hold on to what we’ve got.
You mentioned the health and social transfer. The social transfer includes funds for university education and also the transfer for social services. Is your government prepared to separate those so that we can know exactly how much is going to each province for post-secondary education?
