York University students launch 10-day occupation
York University students will begin a 10-day campus occupation on Monday in protest of rising tuition costs for post-secondary education in Canada.
The York Federation of Students says members will gather at a common area at the north-end campus Monday morning and will remain on the site until the National Day of Student Action on Feb. 1.
The "Freezing to Drop Tuition Fees" camp out is meant to draw attention to university underfunding and protest a new Ontario tuition grant program.
The York students' group says the tuition program excludes two-thirds of students.
