Polls shed light on QC population’s views of planned tuition changes 


Two recent polls illuminate how Quebecers view the province’s planned tuition changes, reports the Montreal Gazette. One survey of 1,000 Quebecers found that the more information Quebecers gain about the planned tuition changes, the less they support the idea. 44% of respondents did not think doubling out-of-province tuition would effectively protect the French language, while 30% said it would and the rest were unsure. 53% agreed that the plan “is driven more by politics than by an effective measure to protect the French language.” A separate survey of 1,253 Quebecer found that 63% of respondents thought that QC should consider the English universities’ proposal.
