It's part of Quebec's "full employment for bureaucrats" plan - end high school a year early (11th grade), delay university by a year (most bachelor's degrees are 3 years) and make a whole new layer of bureucracy!EJB said:Graeme: It is a CEGEP.
A college in the true sense of the word. At the time it cost about $50 a year to attend (university in my first yr, 1989 was $650, not incl books).
Instead of Grade 12 & 13 you go to Cegep if you want to go to University.
Normally a CEGEp'er is between the ages of 17-19.
Only went to Selby for the EMT class at night. Spent more time at Abbott. Used to take my BC100 with me on the bus and listen with headphones ...EJB said:Hey Peter: Do ya remember de la savanne and Selby, what about Showmart or the Viger campus
On another list (Canada-based list), folks were talking about how "Montreal is still safer than those big Yankee cities". Dunno, man. I can't think of a single US city that's had three school shootings - can you? Can you name another city in Canada that's had one?jellotor said:It does seem like there's a higher incidence of school/college shootings in Quebec. Perhaps that's a bit of a broad generalization but either way it's a perception among many.
