One day after cutting funding for Ryerson University’s expansion to Brampton, Doug Ford’s Conservative government refused to comment on whether they plan to maintain Ontario’s free post-secondary tuition program, according to the Toronto Star.

When asked twice about the status of the free Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP), Merrilee Fullerton, the minister of training, colleges and universities, told reporters the government is concerned about the province’s finances.

“We promised the people of Ontario to restore accountability and trust in Ontario’s finances,’ Fullerton said in a statement to The Eye, when asked about the program. “Part of that process means making tough decisions about projects across Ontario.”

Ha wonderful. 

At least they haven't said anything specific yet. It does make sense they would be trying to find anyway they can to reduce costs. 

Will be painful for students surely. But, numbers are hard to argue - ballooning public debt with increasing debt servicing costs - some fiscal austerity is going to be necessary.
