The University of Manitoba BoG is about to try to imposed fee hikes of up to $460 again this year.
Last year we stopped them for the most part. We did get nailed with the $150 Tech Fee of which none of it was spent on Student Computing instead it went to a new mainframe to replace the old mainframe. The new mainframe is a bit of a joke in my opinion. The University had to remove the cap on VW’s because the new mainframe could not track VW’s. (I am glad there is no cap on VWs for the record) You can read my opinion on the fee here: http://www.joeycoleman.ca/archives/2005/08/27/wait_a_second_what_is_this.html
