We say No to a further erosion of social programs that help our community’s most vulnerable members.

We say No to cuts in Healthcare that are already having a disastrous impact on crucial front line staff.

Friday May 1 at 5 pm Demo Against Austerity

Gather in Norman Bethune Square at 5pm with students and community members against Austerity!

Our Public Services are facing massive budget cuts under the Philippe Couillard-led Liberal government. Their austerity measures will have a disproportionate impact on students, the working poor and middle class. GSA members have already seen the result of these cuts – increased service fees, Teaching Assistants being asked to do more with less, and a reorganization of how scholarships are paid are a few of the more recent developments.

It will not be long before the senior management of the University is placed in the inevitable position of demanding further tuition increases, which will place GSA members in further debt, that is those of us who can continue to pursue graduate-level studies.

Stand up with fellow students this Friday and say No to Austerity!
