LIBERAL CAMPAIGN COMMERCIAL: *lala la, pretty shiny music, helicopter shots of snow-capped mountains* Look! We've done such a good job! Look at how well we've done for education! Biggest funding increase to post-secondary in the past decade! Wheee! *glugglugglug*
ME: *astonished stare*

Excuse me: FUNDING INCREASE? Is that why tuition has gone up OVER ONE HUNDRED PERCENT in the last four years? Are you people actually LIVING IN YOUR ASS? HOW DO YOU BREATHE LIKE THAT?

*breathes*

They're actually touting this as one of their successes. That they have engineered a funding increase to post-secondary since they got elected. *blinks, stares*

While we're at it, why the hell hasn't the NDP put out any commercials yet? I'd like to see some Liberal-bashing from someone other than the BC Teachers Union, please (though acknowledgedly theirs are pretty effective).

Because the NDP can't campaign until a month before the election so April 17th. The liberal commercials aren't considered 'campaigns'.

That's Canadian political logic for you.

It begs the question though, where is this so-called funding going?

I'm thinking to fund all these brand-new trade schools they're plunking down every-damn-where to supplant higher learning and aid that "highest job creation rate in the country" spiel. The Arts are useless, didn't you hear? *sarcastic face* (They don't mention that most of those jobs are construction work and paper-pushing. >.<)

Hehe. I'm in media studies, learning all about the evils of consumerism. I'm pretty sure our business-friendly government would like nothing more than to push us off a cliff
