Latest from the RAG Maclean's
Well, Maclean's is taking aim at the "ruling class" of "entitled students" in Quebec. Because, when I think power I think students protesting tuition hikes. It's normal behaviour for a government leader to crack down on the ruling class, just like they do all the time with country club conservatives who they meet (rather than granting them extra-special permission to come to Canada).
For relevant info on the tremendous intergenerational inequity in these cuts targeted at students by a serious writer, see John Moore's column in (of all places) The National Post. For more info on the toxic effect of tuition hikes in terms of social class and marginalized groups, see Nick Falvo.
