Program Title: News Headline: Drop Fees for a Poverty-Free Ontario
Description: Intro script:
In 2008, on the November 5 Student Day of Action to Drop Fees, over 10,000 students took to the streets in fourteen cities across Ontario to demand a more affordable and accessible system of post-secondary education. The Drop Fees campaign was initiated by the Canadian Federation of Students-Ontario, the student organization representing over 300,000 college and university students across the province.
This year, the â€œDrop Feesâ€� campaign has been expanded to â€œDrop Fees for a Poverty-Free Ontario.â€� Shelley Melanson, Chairperson of the Canadian Federation of Students-Ontario, tells us why.
Featured Speakers/Guests: Shelley Melanson, with an intro voiced by Candace Mooers
