The student association at CEGEP du Vieux Montréal has come up with a rather unique response to the government’s controversial Bill 78 – and it involves purchasing assault rifles.
At a general assembly on Tuesday, the Association générale étudiante du CEGEP du Vieux Montréal expressed its unhappiness with the “intimidation” and “state violence” in the Liberal government’s “anti-democratic” Law 78, and then proceeded to authorize the purchase of 47 AK-47 assault rifles.
This was a joke, of course, or rather an act of political theater. The student association has no plans to actually buy any assault rifles, which are illegal in Canada anyway.
In case you were worried.
