A Free Public Conference on: Une Conférence Publique sur:

 Quelle est la juste part ? What is a fair share of taxes?

By authors & celebrity public speakers: auteurs et célèbres conférenciers:

Professeurs Patrick Turmel & David Robichaud

During last year’s protests, the students were demanding free university tuition, but they were told by Charest: ‘They were not contributing their fair share!’’ What is a fair share & who is not really making a fair contribution to the public coffers?

Pendant les dernières manifestations des étudiants réclamaient une éducation universitaire gratuite, Charest avait exigé que « les étudiants doivent faire leur juste part? Alors, quelle est la juste part et c’est qui, qui ne fait pas sa juste part?  

(To be followed by a discussion period)

Thank you for reading this story...

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
