Marois questions universities' need for funding
Pauline Marois says it's legitimate to question whether universities need any more money.
At a press conference marking the end of her party's two-day caucus, Marois said the idea of university underfunding may be a myth.
"Figures are available that allow us to question that affirmation that some have made for a long time," she said.
Universities say they're underfunded by at least 600 million dollars per year. The Marois government has recently cancelled a tuition fee freeze that was meant to fill that alleged gap.
But Marois says, considering the fact that the universities are asking for more money, it is only responsible to question the claim.
