In 1999, the Newfoundland and Labrador government made a move to make higher education more affordable. It brought in a freeze on post-secondary tuition fees, while also phasing in a cut of 25 per cent in existing fees.
Each year, the government has maintained that freeze, making Memorial University one of the most affordable universities in the country.
Student groups have embraced the freeze, which remains a part of provincial government policy. However, the freeze has meant a cap on an important source of income for Memorial as well as the College of the North Atlantic.
What do you think? Should the policy be maintained, or is it time for the freeze to be lifted? Cast your ballot in our informal survey of audience opinion.
