The President of the Lakehead University Student Union calls the Provincial Government's 30 percent tuition rebate program a PR stunt. Mike Snoddon wasn't impressed with College and University Minister Glen Murray's visit to Thunder Bay this morning. The LUSU President says if the Minister was serious about making post secondary education more affordable he would freeze tuition rates. Snoddon says the rebate does not include all students and only helps high school students who come from middle income families.
