PHOTOS: Students hit the pavement to protest rising tuition

University students 400 strong came out in force to the steps of the Legislature on Feb. 3 to let Premier Christy Clark know that student debt in B.C. is too high, and enough is enough. It was a diverse spread, with members of the general public standing in solidarity with student body leaders, university representatives from abroad, and students from every conceivable year and avenue of study.

For many, protesting wasn’t a question, but a responsibility. “It’s our one way of saying we don’t agree with the amount we have to pay for schooling,” says Natalie Fish, a third-year Nursing student. “If we do nothing, it’s like we’re voting for the system.”
