    TORONTO, March 19 /CNW/ - Federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty delivered
$800 million in additional post-secondary funding for provinces and
territories in today's federal budget. This investment raises Ontario
students' expectations for additional post-secondary education funding in
Thursday's provincial budget, according to the Ontario Undergraduate Student
Alliance (OUSA).
    "We whole-heartedly supported Premier McGuinty's call to Ottawa for more
federal funds for higher learning," said Paris Meilleur, President of OUSA. "A
federal investment has been made; we now expect the province to deliver for
Ontario students."
    Students will be available for comment after the Ontario provincial
budget on Thursday.
