With Quebec’s three-month student strike continuing after a massive student rejection of a government proposal on tuition policy, police have been called to at least two of the province’s campuses this morning to enforce court orders that the colleges re-open.
At Collège de Rosemont in Montreal, several hundred student demonstrators were pepper-sprayed by police early this morning. Meanwhile, riot police are reported to be on standby at Collège Lionel Groulx in Blainville.
At least thirty injunctions calling for campuses to re-open for classes have been issued so far. To date, nearly all of them have been ignored.
Noon update | Classes have been canceled for the day at Collège Lionel Groulx.
