What is there to know? Quebec by exploiting weak politicians has a very socialist existence that the rest of Canada pays for -- then they still bitch and whine.
Tuition in Canada is heavily subsidized -- it doesn't actually cost $3000-5000 per student to run a university but the government pays for ~65-70% and the student is only expected to pay 30-35%. That in and of itself is already ridiculous but protesting because the government wants students to pay a negligible amount is comical.
As for being taxed that -- yes Quebec has the second highest income tax rates in Canada but that is because Quebec wants to be special and socialist. Drop all the Quebec-only social programs and the costs associated with maintaining that the province is special and your taxes would not be as high. That though is not the Quebec way -- what Quebec wants is to maintain all their BS but just have the rest of Canada pay for it.
What is even more comical about this and what Americans won't realize is that the minimum wage in QC is $9.90/hr so not only do Canadians pay a fraction of what Americans do but students have a much greater ability to earn money.
