Across Canada, public education activists will join students as they take to the streets on February 1, to call for a high-quality post-secondary education system that is equitable and free of financial barriers. CPE affiliated groups were alerted to the realities of today’s job realities by this week’s articles in the Toronto Star.

WHAT: Rally and March to Queen’s Park
readers may want support the three demands of the Canadian Federation of Students campaign:
- Increase funding from the Provincial government and restore a Federal funding transfer for post-secondary education
- Reduce tuition fees
- Drop student debt
As advocates for quality public education in Toronto, we must add our voice to demand that job training centres, community colleges and universities operate less like corporate businesses. Clearly, education, now more than ever, must be properly funded through fair taxation and seen by governments as a critically important public service for Torontians.
