Ontario Premier Doug Ford dumped on student unions in a fundraising pitch to supporters of his Progressive Conservative party Monday. "I think we all know what kind of crazy Marxist nonsense student unions get up to," the email, signed "Doug," said. His government announced Jan. 17 that it would end mandatory university student fees that fund unions, student newspapers and clubs. The government also lowered tuition by about 10 per cent across the board, while axing grants that let low-income students study for free.
