A picture is worth a thousand words  
In regards to the title of this entry to the photo that I've uploaded here in this journal entry, yes pencil

It really is worth a thousand words. For starters, the use of Franglais (a combination of French and English). The allusion that it uses to make it look similar to the propaganda/advertising that our public transport (STM) uses are just some of the messages this photo conveys to the public exclamation1

Right now, university students across the province are against the proposed tuition hikes where the tuition fees in Quebec will increase by $325 more every year for the next five years, starting in the Fall semester of 2012 going until 2016-2017. The total tuition bill, including mandatory institutional fees, will go from $2,890 to $4,700 per year !!

Therefore with the increase in tuition fees, students will either need to work more or dig themselves deeper into debt. This translates to an additional 162 hours of work per year on average in order to pay off of this increase. Which will result in making university less accessible and out of reach downarrow

"Riot" is a rather strong word with negative connotations, I think you mean the demonstration right?

It's supposed to be from 1PM to 5PM at the Place du Canada venue, but I have absolutely no idea where that is...

I'll need to Google map it to find it from McGill University.

WOW. And I thought money for education was tight only where I live. O_O
The problem with our system is that our government has money, but they won't spend it on Education. They would rather use it on prisons (where prisoners get housing, food, and recreation center better than a school gets! wtf?!)!!! *RAGED*
I swear... I won't even get into college because the tuition is so jacked up. =_=;;

I'll look at those links when I get the chance tomorrow :D

btw, awesome poster. If only we can have profanity like that here to voice the public opinion. =_=;;;; Recently, we had a march in front our capital though :Db
its a step up for us.

(I realized I need a mad icon of Arashi.)

*rages alongside with you*

They invest all their money elsewhere that is NOT needed and not in areas that SHOULD be placed in!!

*shakes fist*

And we (successfully) demonstrated against tuition fees of 500€ per semester in 2004/05(in Saxony-Anhalt/Germany), now we have to pay only 70€ per semester...
But $4,700 per YEAR??? That's insane!
