RE: Horwath urges young females at Kingston conference to believe in themselves
Speaking to a group of female students at Queen’s University, Ontario NDP leader Horwath said that she wants to “promote greater equity to reduce inequality, and help empower women” by implementing a tuition freeze. Making post-secondary education more affordable, she claimed, would “make it more possible to welcome even more women into the discussion.” Could a more appealing message be delivered to a group of female student activists?
But there’s a problem with Horwath’s message: 54% of all postsecondary students in Ontario are female – so the argument that the province’s severely overburdened taxpayers should be made to pay for a tuition freeze because high tuition fees are impeding the relative progress of females doesn’t make sense.
