McGill has the nerve to still charge me tuition "extra-session" fees in the summer of my PhD 6th year - all for the privilege of conducting research and being a teaching assistant. Professors and administrative staff refuse to admit that tuition for PhD students in the U.S. and Europe is either zero or next to zero.
If graduate funding was CAD $35,000/yr for all students, how would that change your life? I would be able to pay all my expenses and tuition. I wouldn't be relying on parents for money into my late 20's for basic living expenses. I would feel respected in society, less stressed, and less angry towards the society we live in.
