That last post just reminded me of how thankful I am that Canada’s tuition’s are fairly tame by comparison to some US universities.
Granted the university I’m planning to go to isn’t world class like Yale, but its tuition per semester is only around $3000-4000; so around $9400 per year. I’ve seen many universities in the US that at the cheapest are 1.5-2X higher than that, and the most prestigious schools are tens of thousands more. o.o
Its still not cheap by any means (After 4 years and all expenses covered), I’ll probably be in debt at least $30K (adding onto my current debt of $15K or so).
I don’t know how but these already shitty companies got even more shitty and have somehow increased their monthly plans from a huge amount compared to when I signed up 4 years ago.
I have a very nice plan that is reasonably priced for a smartphone but my carrier (bell) now demands that if you get a new device you can’t continue with your current plan and must instead purchase a new monthly plan which starts, and I repeat STARTS at $70/month (that includes no data)
To get the same plan that I currently have (which is $65/month) now will cost me $90/month before taxes. It’ll be over $100 a month.
This is such BS. Ugh. Canada has some of the worst telecommunication companies in the world both in terms of prices and quality.
And I just checked all 3 major companies; bell, telus and rogers. Their plans are all the same.

I got an ask telling me not to be so much of a ‘downer’ about the things I post about Canada.
Anyone who pays any attention to politics or national news, will be well aware that this country overall is not going in a good direction.
I post these ‘negative’ articles because I am concerned about the state of this country. I want people to be aware. I want people to get angry and change things. I will continue to do so.
I post positive articles when I see them too, but I’m not going to censor this blog because it makes you feel bad about Canada.
As Jon Stewart wisely said:
“I’m not going to censor myself to comfort your ignorance”
Open your eyes.

As a Canadian, and especially one that follows Canadian politics closely, when someone mentions ‘senators’ I’m never sure whether they’re talking about the Ottawa hockey team or those who work in the Canadian senate.
