What the 2013 B.C. throne speech says about postsecondary education
University students and graduates hoping (dreaming?) for pre-election pledges of tuition reductions and help with student loan debt won't find any comfort in the B.C. Liberal government's 2013 throne speech.
The throne speech, delivered today (February 12) in Victoria, makes two vague promises on post-secondary education:
1. "In the coming days, your government will introduce...measures to help families of young children save for post-secondary education."
2. "In the months ahead, your government will begin work to create the environment for a school of traditional Chinese medicine at a British Columbian post-secondary institution."
