  • 2015: How post-secondary students can fight 'grim reality' of rising textbook costs

    Cate Talaue figures she's done all she can to find affordable textbooks to get herself through her post-secondary education.

    "I've bought textbooks at a used bookstore," says the student, who is launching into media and communications studies for her second degree at Brock University in Ontario's Niagara Region.

    "I've borrowed. I've rented. I've tried buying a textbook from Amazon."

    Talaue's quest for books that would put a smaller dent in her bank account comes as students buffeted by high tuition fees also face increasing costs for textbooks, some of which can hit $200 or $300 a piece.
