Rick Mercer’s Voting 101 for Students

Rick Mercer's rant from the 2008 federal election still rings true this time around. The interests of students are once again underrepresented in federal politics. The word "tuition" wasn't even mentioned in this year's English language debate, let alone the idea of improving federal funding for graduate studies. Are you satisfied with the current level of federal government support for post-secondary education? If not, take a few minutes to call/email your local candidates and ask them what they (and their party) plan to do to make post-secondary education more accessible. Evaluate how genuine/realistic/existent their plans are and make an informed decision. VOTE on May 2!
