The Manitoba Advantage

"The inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries."

"Advanced Education Minister Diane McGifford has rejected 10 of 12 requests from the University of Manitoba and the University of Winnipeg for tuition cap exemptions."

Meanwhile, the President's office at the the University of Winnipeg has sent letters to every one of that school's departments, saying that they must cut their budget by 3.5% this year, to help deal with the paltry 2% increase in funding from the Province of Manitoba this upcoming year. Two per cent is a decrease from previous years, and does not cover inflation.

The Province apparently cannot afford to pay for universities, yet they are not allowing anyone who can afford them pay.
