Subject: "$15 MINIMUM wage, FREE! college+university -

               NEEDED N-O-W!" (President/Party Leader of
               the Égalité Party of Canada)


Regarding your "Georgia Straight" (http://www.straight.com) article
entitled "Dragged down by debt" in your April 26th - May 3rd issue 
on page 47, I'd just like to point out that with the Égalité Party of 
Canada in power post-secondary education would be FREE!

What kind of jobs are they likely to get? 

High paying or low paying? 

The Government is crippling OUR BRIGHTEST YOUNG PEOPLE 
with debt turning them into INDENTURED SERVANTS OF THE 

Does this mean they canNOT have families like everybody else? 

How long does the Government of Canada expect post-secondary 
graduates to postpone getting married and then, postpone having

Clearly, high post-secondary tuition fees and a low minimum wage 
are no longer tenable.  The Égalité Party of Canada therefore pro-
