York U might have its water shut off?

https://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2018/0 ... -bill.html

I'm glad I don't have kids, but if I did, York is the LAST place I'd send them to school. This gives me yet another reason.

I guess if they shut the water off, that would make those incessant picket lines redundant since nobody would want to go in...

Thanks OP. York's problems, including strke (and other college/university strikes) make online degrees look good. Many accredited online Canadian college and university programs available. Little history of strikes. And you can work while studying :)

York U is a complete joke.

The rare time I actually agree with a Cohn column:

Only a fool would willingly choose York (or send his/her kids there)...

Kind of hard to feel sorry for the students. Caveat emptor in action -- you buy crap you get crap. Should have gone to another school.

^^ Ryerson is actually a good school. A lot of recent graduates appear to be having great success in their field. I would say being connected to the downtown hub with different nationalities, gives Ryerson a unique edge. In the end, it doesn't matter where you go. At the end of the day everyone will have that piece of paper, it's up to you to open those doors. Yeah, I could spend thousands of dollars and say I went to UofT, but if my personality sucks, and I don't have good business sense, none of that matters.

Still better than Ryerson
Does Ryerson go on strike every year? York does...

Outside of Schulich, which has its own union, why would you ever contemplate going to York? Sure its in Toronto, which is nice for a lot of people. However, is that convenience really worth it?

UofT and Ryerson are right downtown which is a hell of a lot more convenient than York... and they don't close down due to strikes every year either.

When I was in high school, if you wanted to question somebody's intelligence you said "He was accepted to York..." Apparently that statement still applies today.

The hate is strong with this one.

Maybe it is more convenient for you, but not me.

I am currently at York and ya the strike sucks, but I appreciate what the Union is going through. It is the university itself which has dragged along the strike and is waiting for government intervention as it usually results in the employer's favour.

This strike represents the fight against precarity in the workplace which is an ever-increasing battle as companies continue to see labour as disposable and will cut employees to continue their supposed growth.

It is really hard to focus on my future with this strike on-going but its needed to secure our future as employees.

I take it you hope/plan on working in the public sector.
