Students Welcome First Party Commitment to Keep the Freeze from the NDP

Following students’ provincial day of action on November 12, the Newfoundland and Labrador NDP is the first party to commit to keeping the tuition freeze for all students. In this morning’s announcement, NDP leader Earl McCurdy pointed to the need to attract and retain young people to the province, and to maintain an competitive economic edge through accessible education. “The commitment to keep the freeze is in the best interest of students and their families, and is in the best interest of Newfoundland and Labrador,” said Travis Perry, chairperson of the Canadian Federation of Students Newfoundland and Labrador. Students will continue to take action until all parties commit to maintaining the tuition freeze for all students and restoring harmful funding cuts to the College of the North Atlantic and Memorial University.
