Hon. Jane Stewart (Minister of Human Resources Development, Lib.)

Mr. Speaker, indeed, we welcome the students to the Hill and are glad to hear the views that they present to us.
The hon. member will know that the question of tuition is clearly a provincial jurisdiction. However I hope he will also know that the government takes the issue of access to post-secondary education very seriously. That is why every year we invest $1.6 billion in the Canada student loan program. That is why we have also introduced the Canada millennium foundation.
There are more programs that the government has put in place to support lifelong learning, and I hope the hon. member will recognize that.
