Student Group Calls On Feds To Pause Loan Repayment, Cancel Student Debt

Brandon Rhéal Amyot wonders what they could spend their time doing if they weren’t so worried about their finances and those of other students.

Amyot is a third-year political science and media student at Lakehead University in Orillia, Ont., and has already accumulated $30,000 of student debt.

“I won’t be stepping out with my best foot forward, because I’m going to spend a decade trying to pay off my student debt for education,” Amyot told HuffPost Canada. “And education should not be about profit.”
