    Hard to feel sympathy for them when their tuition fees are already lower than the other provinces.
    hard to feel sympathy for them when they treat the rest of Canada as international students.

    here in quebec our students are on strike because the goverment is making them pay 300$ more for college.

    shit is going down !
    Isn't it that it increases 300$ per year for the next 5 years? That's still low tuition and a silly reason to go on strike for.

    Or at least, most major metropolitan areas. There was a town hall meeting in my city ward over the 2 shootings that happened within 3 days of each other last week, and then the news of that dude who robbed 7 women in one day at gunpoint. What worries me most about all this is thanks to Chretien we can't even carry mace, a tazer, or even just a pocket knife for self defence, so I always worry that shit like this will keep happening unless our retarded laws about self defence are fixed, and I worry that it'll happen to me and I'll have no means of defending myself.

    Thought i'd post this in this thread as well

    http://facepunch.com/threads/1179487?highlight=

    Basically, my best friends dad owns a mill in my town and there was a large explosion and fire the other night which injured 22 people and as of about an hour ago killed a second person from their extensive injuries. They recently finished expanding the mill and adding on a new "energy" sector to the mill which they were required to do and so far that is what the people in the explosion are saying could have caused it, but we won't know for sure until the investigation is done. About 200 people are out of jobs now, my friends dad lost one of his mills and most likely a lot of money, 2 people have died 5 more are in critical condition and others sustained injuries.

    We were called about 5 minutes after the initial explosion and were down there within 15 minutes after it happened, by that time most of the mill had already been engulfed by flames. Was a horrible sight to see

    Edited:



    Edited:

    Just some more information on the blast, from where we were standing which was about 200-300 meters from the building there was debris from the explosion. Workers were saying when they ran out they saw pieces of the mill thrown 400 meters away and flames shooting 40 meters high into the air. Windows were broken 5 blocks away and people felt the explosion from over 5km away.

    325$ adding up for 5 years (1625$)

    75% increase on 5 years. It's bollock sir, more importantly it goes against our core values as Quebecers and it shows yet again how Québec differs in mentality from the ROC. Our fucking federalist PM can go suck a cock, he's so trying to break our will. (Charest our PM was a deputy for the federal PC before becoming a provincial Liberal) Fuck this neoliberal bullshit agenda trying to fuck every country up.

    That we can have places like that in our country and still claim to be the envy of the world, is baffling.

    if you aren't a citizen of Quebec you have to pay higher tuition, correct?
    at least here, every Canadian citizen pays the same tuition and it's higher for international students. I'm fairly certain it's that way in most of, if not all of, Canada besides Quebec.

    Lol, Québec is such in a pile of shit right now. Student reporting in, I've been on strike since March 11th. Haven't been to school since. Nothing much to do, Teachers can't tell us to do homeworks because this is not school time. Of course, if the strike gets any longer, then I'm just going to lose my session and that will be a year of my life wasted.

    Ah well.

    Me too, but don't know the details too much. My family is a bit further than that.

    I'm an Australian who went to Canada a couple months ago.
    -Toronto was nice, for a big city. I had Tim Hortons coffee every day.
    -Montreal was ok, lots of homeless people and drug addicts walking around the streets. I ate poutine, both the proper kind and the mcdonald's kind.
    -Calgary was a nice change of pace and finally started seeing some cool scenery. Someone tipped a Tim Horton's French Vanilla Latte under the seats on the bus, soaking my backpack. It now permanently smells like a Tim Horton's French Vanilla Latte.
    -Banff. Saw a Unicorn. I snowboarded almost every day and hooked up with a beautiful blonde Swiss girl. I fucking love Banff.

    Canada verdict: awesome

    Surprisingly, in the tiny village I live in, the ONLY store here (doubles as a small take-out and general store) makes proper poutine!

    I am thankful for the people that own the store.

    I'm pretty sure they only have it in Quebec, but I might be wrong.

    There's a late night poutine place opening up downtown semi-close to George Street, it's going to be amazing.

    I know that McDonald's used to carry poutines (and mini pizzas) in like the early 2000's. I guess they never sold well.

    Costco sells a bucket of poutine for $4.60
    I can't buy any though because they banned me from the food court. How un-Canadian. :(

    Yeah I live in Ottawa and if McDicks had poutine outside Quebec, I'm sure we'd have it.

    Also George St., I'm assuming St. John's Nfld? I love that place, I've been a couple times and honestly have never had so much fun.

    Yeah! It's pretty fantastic.
    I prefer St. John's to anywhere else that I've been in Canada but I guess I'm pretty biased since I live here. However, the music scene sucks here, I wish more bands would make the trip.
