Quebec students have been in the streets for weeks now protesting their government's move to raise tuition. Even with the increase, the province will have the lowest rates in Canada.
Is a university education becoming too expensive ...and is the protest justified?

Gordie Wornoff, 31, (BJ,'05, Carleton) is thrilled to be a production assistant on CBC's Cross Country Checkup. He is a writer and woodworker living in Toronto. He specializes in reclaimed materials and artistic furniture designs. His carpentry work can be seen on Discovery Channel's "Junk Raiders," now in its third season.
Gordie Wornoff writes on one of the lesser known consequences of the Air Canada labour dispute:
Adrienne Rosen, owner of First International Courier in Toronto, worries that Air Canada's simmering and still unresolved labour dispute could quickly chop her profits and force her to go out-of-pocket to keep clients happy.
"We really rely on Air Canada," she says. "They offer a special level of service for people like me."
Rosen is constantly monitoring Air Canada's operational systems for delays that will directly impact her cargo service which moves about a hundred packages per day; three quarters containing medical-related supplies.
"Even if Air Canada experiences a simple mechanical problem, we are looking for a plan B," she says, explaining that a potential strike action of 8600 mechanics, grounds crew and baggage handlers and 3000 pilots would be devastating to her business and to the Canadian public.
