"As a Journalism student, a majority of my course material is practical work, like learning to use technical equipment for broadcasts, covering events with professor guidance, etc. Because of the strike, I've missed so much course material that will be hard to make up after we return (we were supposed to cover the Royal Agricultural Fair as a class and are now not able to because of the strike). It's extremely frustrating to be sitting around doing nothing instead of learning, and it's completely unfair that our Christmas break is threatening to be shortened. Thankfully, home isn't too far for me, but are International students being considered? Who haven't seen their family in MONTHS and now will barely be able to see them for 10 days? The strike is "for the students", but WE are the ones suffering.
