Media release: Students were looking for a bold investment in education and the climate, and saw neither. Tuition has increased more than 20% since this government came to power, making Nova Scotia the least affordable province for pursuing post-secondary education. Instead of making investments in students and investing in a just transition to a green economy, the government continues to give tax cuts for corporations.

The Canadian Federation of Students-Nova Scotia (CFS- NS) has been informed that they are not invited to the first meeting the government’s newly reinstated provincial Sexual Violence Prevention Committee to address sexual assault on university campuses. This decision comes as continued retaliation by the Minister of Labour and Advanced Education, Labi Kousoulis, against the CFS-NS, after an op-ed was published in The Coast on March 15 that was critical of the Liberal government’s decision to vote down campus sexual violence legislation.
