Having sent three of my kids to university in Ontario, in 4 year programs, 25 years ago, I  can only think how lucky Quebec students are to be able to go to university so cheaply. Even 20 years ago, it was more expensive in Ontario universities than it is in Quebec in 2012. They should get back to class and thank their lucky stars!  I bet they don't even have to work in the summer months to save for their studies...
