Newfoundlanders and Labradorians Against Student Debt (NLASD)

This blog serves as an outlet for all Newfoundlanders and Labradorians who are in debt with student loans. We aren't asking for a free ride from the Government in paying back our loans, but what we are asking for is to have the interest eliminated. What is worth more to the province of Newfoundland and Labrador? Stopping out-migration of educated young people? Or the money the government receives in interest off of our Newfoundland and Labrador student loans?

Stop the outmigration at it's root, give our youth a break and an incentive to stay home and help build our motherland.

Personally I had to join the military because of my student debt.

Some suggestions
Provincial Tax breaks, this would accomplish two objectives one keep our trained youth home to help build our economy, and give them a reprieve on student debt so they can stay and help build our homeland.
Interest reprieve
portion of interest reprieve
incentive to work in our province for less with a reprieve on theior student loans.
Comments:
Out migration by any other name would be.

Brain Drain.
