Halifax, Nova Scotia - Over 1,000 students and their allies owned downtown Halifax today, protesting the January 5th announcement by the provincial NDP government that it had come to an agreement with university presidents to allow tuition for Canadian students to increase by 3 percent for the next three years. Tuition for medicine, law and dentistry are allowed an unlimited increase. This is coupled with an announcement that operating grants to Nova Scotia universities will be cut by 3 percent for 2012-2013.
For those of the visual persuasion, don't miss out on some photos from the day's rally.
