    Trump just waived interest on student loans

    Wonder if JT will do the same in Canada once he comes out of hiding...

    Canada has The Repayment Assistance Plan in place. All the students who find it more difficult to keep up with their loans, can apply for it!!

    Much better than what the USA did for their students with loans on their backs!!

    Applying for it doesn't mean that you are going to get it.

    You definitely are going to get it if you qualify for it just like EI. It is better than what Trump is espousing as all his bill is doing is deferring payments until this Covid-19 pandemic ends. Then they have to start paying the interest / payments like they did before the start of the crisis.

    The Canadian government already heavily subsidies a university degree. My 4 years worth of student debt in Canada would not pay for 1 year at a US university.

    Trump is doing a good thing, kudos to him, but to use it as a cheap shot at JT is dumb.

    Obviously on planet beaver leftists aren’t responsible for anything. Let society pick up the tab.
    Germany pays for university education fully.

    That’s a good move


    At the bottom of all the tributes paid to democracy, is the little man, walking into the little booth, with a little pencil, making a little cross on a little bit of paper - no amount of rhetoric or voluminous discussion can possibly diminish the overwhelming importance of the point.

    Please try a reading comprehension course during the quarantine. It’s not the same when you’re only a legend in your own mind.

    See the question again?

    ON WHAT PLANET SHOULDN’T A HEALTHY HUMAN BEING BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR DEBT THEY INCURRED?

    See the question now? Your pathological need to be the Terb intellectual is failing you miserably.

    Keep your alt right views to yourself, to take your meds!! First a right winger is complaining that Trudeau is not doing enough, until I posted a link that it was already in place.

    Then you start going ballistic. So tell that to Trump, okay!!

    "if you qualify for it"...isn't that what I said?
    And what's wrong with deferring payments until the pandemic is over especially if someone is out of work in the meantime?

    Germany pays for it? Define "Germany".

    Unless of course you mean "everyone else pays for it...other than you"...you like it when everyone else pays for stuff because that makes you feel like it's "free".
