Talks on-going regarding fall tuition increase, Minister says

New Brunswick's minister of Post Secondary Education, Training, and Labour says he doesn't know if there will be tuition fee increases in the fall because discussions are on-going.

Donald Arsneault says 55 per cent of the approximately 9,000 students applied for money to attend public postsecondary schools are paying no tuition.

Arseneault adds that tuition fees have gone up by 51 per cent during the last eleven Tory budgets, while tuition increased by nine per cent during the past six Grit budgets.
