Apples = Apes

I often enjoy the (fuzzy) logic of the Canadian Federation of Students.

The Canadian Federation of Students points out that a tuition fee freeze actually attracts citizens to a province. Follow this logic:

According to figures released last month by the provincial government, 3,294 more young people between the ages of 15 and 24 came to Manitoba than left during the period between 1999 and 2006. This compares favourably to the net loss of 2,579 between 1992 and 1999, when tuition fees were rising.

Apparently someone doesn’t understand the difference between causation, correlation and coincidence.

It reminds me of the Saskatchewan Party statement that the Riders have never won the Grey Cup while the NDP has been in power. A funny side bar, but nothing that has any relation to each other. The difference is Saskatchewan Party officials don't actully believe the two are related.

The Saskatchewan Party are becoming famous for saying such ridiculous statements. I guess they think they are funny people. Maybe that floats with redneck types?!
Those ridiculous statements are almost as funny as referring to Sask Party supporters as "rednecks". I guess that's the type of humour which floats with tolerant types such as yourself.
It would be funnier if the Sask Party would say that a Grey Cup victory and low tuition will result in increased immigration.
