Thousands of Toronto students just walked out over OSAP cuts
Students at colleges and universities in Toronto and the rest of the province have walked out of class today in protest of several of Doug Ford's education cuts.
Today's protest, along with many others, was sparked by the province's cuts to student loan funding and policies, which many students depend on to get an education.
Now, thousands of students around the province at dozens of schools walked out of their classrooms at noon. Organizers state that they will "not tolerate [the province's] attacks on students."
Ryerson, OCAD, U of T, and many other schools in the Toronto area participated, with many students banding together to protest the cuts.
Kudos to all the students walking out of class today to protest the changes to OSAP. I hope Ford is listening. Keep making cuts that hurt the young people in this province, but don't be surprised when your family loses office. We are the future and we will vote— Tyler Brown (@TylerBrown429) March 20, 2019
Rallies also saw huge walkouts in Ottawa, Kingston, St. Catharines, and dozens of other communities in the province.
