 Multiple voting .... hmmmm.  You can express your opinion easily in the comments without trying to influence the vote one way or another.  Most people just vote and don't comment.

It would show tremendous results in 20 years
_______________________________
Most definitely!!!
_______________________________
Of course
_______________________________
I think it should for those who qualify and meet standards.
_______________________________
I think the fees for university should be less so not only the rich can afford to go.
_______________________________
Or at least a bit cheaper!! My children are so far in the hole, it is unbelievable and they are not even done yet!
_______________________________
Get them free education then they come back charging the consumers top dollar
_______________________________
However, the costs should be subsidized more heavily to make it affordable.
_______________________________
I wouldn`t say free, but it certainly should be made more affordable so that everyone could attain an education.
_______________________________
maybe not free, BUT much more affordable ....student debt sometimes goes on for years and years. Even after they have children of their own.
_______________________________
Yes and College Too. Student unemployment rates are escalating as they graduate and are debt ridden for many years to come. Less Foreign Students in courses would also benefit Canadians being turned down for courses as they do not pay as much.
_______________________________
The cost will surely trickle down to the tax payers!
_______________________________
However, less emphasis on university, except for professions and more financial support for apprenticeships for trades would be good
_______________________________
absolutely , if not , only the wealthy families can afford education...........we need more than 20 % receiving higher education in order to have a fair and just society.
_______________________________
Free university would create more students who feel entitled and less gratitude and appreciation for hard work! Our society could use more gratitude and appreciation.
_______________________________
if totslly free it will be just taken advantage of - perhaps assistance in form of bursary or scholarship program is a compromise - University education should be earned - it's not a gd given right - JHC
_______________________________
There is no such thing as FREE we the tax payers would have to pay
_______________________________
Who would pay for it? Therefore, my answer is no.
_______________________________
you should have to work for it nothing come free
_______________________________
For starters, the taxpayer can't afford it. Definitely, help should be available in the form of grants that MUST be paid back. To make it free would be an abuse because too many people would start & not finish. An education is something they must work for in order to appreciate it.
_______________________________
more accessible to all but not free
_______________________________
We have too many University grads now. But two year College courses where practical knowledge is learned would make sense!
_______________________________
Not free, but subsidized. If it were without charge, too many young people would attend simply to avoid entering the workforce. And without "skin in the game" more would fail to apply themselves.
_______________________________
It should not be free but it's way to high.
_______________________________
Should not be free but perhaps subsidised by companies that in turn get tax breaks for their contributions.
_______________________________
Not Free,some assistance programs perhaps. I had to work to accomplish my degrees and earning the tuitions feeswas part of my responsibility.It made me appreciate the end results - nobody just gave me the chance to attend I had to earn it.
_______________________________
Pay for education the same as i did.No one should ride for free.
_______________________________
I spent 20 years saving for my kids education, why should it be free now!!!
_______________________________
I don't know that it should be totally free but it should at least be more reasonable so students aren't finishing with lots of debt or for some not be able to go at all.
_______________________________
Can you imagine how abused the system would be if it were free? It would never be appreciated without a cost.
_______________________________
There is no such thing as free. Somebody has to pay for it.
_______________________________
when things are free, people tend not to value them. what is needed is a better financial assistance program for those who do need financial help.
_______________________________
As a taxpayer for over 40 years and no children, I resent having to pay taxes for education. Those with children should be the bearers of these costs.
_______________________________
The system currently in place, where most students have to take on debt to receive education, serves mostly to provide profit for third-party corporations. Even raised taxes would be preferable.
