OMG, what a bunch of self-entitled prima donnas.

Lowest tuition rates in the country ALL thanks to the rest OF the country. Although these days, I guess it's Alberta that's doing most of the doling out.

You're an idiot, Go back and read what I posted, s..l..o..w..l..y.
And then, since I have to once again educate you about the country you claim you were born in, remember this phrase; TRANSFER PAYMENTS!
Do you get it yet moron? ALL provinces are in on the transfer payments. Just that some, mainly Quebec, get back WAY more than what they pay in, and has been doing so for decades.
It used to be primarily Ontario and Alberta kicking in the bulk of the money, but with McNugget's lousy handling of Ontario, we're down to Alberta being THE major contributor.

Can't believe I have to explain something so rudimentary about Canada to a brainless boob that thinks I'm American.
