Scrambling NDP Cancel Planned Education Platform

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Sept. 6, 2011 /CNW/ - Following rave reviews for the 30% Liberal tuition cut and months since the NDP chose to skip education in their disappointing platform, Andrea Horwath scrambled to cancel the planned NDP post-secondary education platform today:

"The NDP leader was originally to announce details of her party's position on post-secondary education at UTM today, but that announcement has now been delayed."
(Mississauga News, September 6, 2011)

Ontarians aren't surprised - the NDP always cut students loose. They increased tuition by 50% after promising a freeze and cancelled grants for low income students. The NDP also:

  • Cut student aid by 48% (1991-92 to 1994-95)
  • Eliminated up front grants; we brought them back
  • Increased tuition by 50% after the promised to eliminate tuition - then freeze it.

Horwath is no better than the PCs:

  • Hiked tuition 71% at universities and 64% at colleges
  • Cut student aid by 41%
  • Cut $435 million from college and university operating funding
