Students should protest real issues

Fees in Quebec are by far the lowest in the country and are less than half those of their concerned counterparts from UVic.

Re: Loud, proud protest (Photo, June 13)

A correction and wake-up call is needed for your June 13 editorial photo caption. It says that our students are supporting “their Quebec counterparts, who are protesting high tuition fees.”

Fees in Quebec are by far the lowest in the country and are less than half those of their concerned counterparts from UVic.

The Quebec students are protesting a fee raise that would bring their rates closer to ours. Their low fees are subsidized by the rest of Canada, so please, put your pots away and get a real issue to make some noise about.
