The headline in the CH reads “Consider Free Tuition NSCC boss urges NS”
Consider free tuition? Free tuition? FREE? You have to be kidding. It would NOT, repeat, NOT be free. It would be subsidised by taxpayers, which in the end costs everyone down the line when they pass the cost on. So why doesn’t the headline read “Consider subsidised tuition…”. Perhaps because it doesn’t sound quite so attractive?
Here’s a ridiculous statement:
Health Minister Chris d’Entremont, a member of the committee, said providing free tuition would be “very, very expensive” and not realistic right now.
Don’t you just hate it when words are misused in this way? It may be a good idea but can’t we just be honest about it?
