MPP David Piccini, who has been travelling to post-secondary institutions across the province to meet with student leaders about the Student Choice Initiative, will be coming to Humber College on May 27, The Avro Post has learned.
Piccini, a Progressive Conservative parliamentary assistant to the minister of training, colleges and universities, was a point person for media interviews regarding the changes to campus financial life made earlier this year.
He told The Avro Post in a campus exclusive in January that his government is “putting students first” with changes that included a 10 per cent tuition cut, eliminating free tuition for students from low-income families, giving choice to students over what student fees they want to pay and changing the rules around the Ontario Student Assistance Program.
Piccini posted about meeting with Western University’s student union on Wednesday. The Avro Post then reached out to request timing around a visit to Humber College.
“Scheduled for May 27th,” the member of provincial parliament responded, adding that he would have come earlier but he needed to “coincide with a date that worked” with the president. The Avro Post is working to clarify if he meant the president of the college, Chris Whitaker.
