On Tuesday, over 50 people (100 by some counts) braved the cold weather to attend a small rally at the centre of campus in Fredericton. The rally goals were to protest the bad ideas of the PSE report, including campus closures (!), deregulation of tuition, and the downgrading of university senates.
Many UNBSJ professors, along with 3 of us students, made the trek up to UNBF.

The rally was organized by the Graduate Student Association of UNB.
The rally was a small gesture to keep the public aware that the post-secondary education issues haven’t been resolved yet, and that we’re still fighting.
I stand bundled up warmly with two jackets, still trying to display my UNBSJ sweatshirt purchased for the first big rally in Fredericton at the legislature.
I made the 6 o’clock CTV News, as Mike Cameron interviewed me in Saint John before we left for Fredericton.
And here I am listening to speakers in Fredericton.
