Quebec students rally|
against fee increases
QUEBEC CITYSome 3,000 students from across Quebec rallied December 6 outside a government-organized conference by the Quebec Liberal Party here on education. It was attended by government, student, union, and boss representatives. The gathering was billed as a discussion on how to improve financing of higher education, but was in fact organized around a government proposal to significantly increase university tuition over the next few years.
Student and trade union representatives opposed to the fee hikes walked out in the middle of the conference, protesting its fake character. Banner above reads, We too, our decision is to say no to tuition fees.
