Student revolt shakes Quebec

Issue No. 2301

There were mass student demonstrations in Montreal, the largest city in the Canadian state of Quebec last week.

Students across the state have been on strike since February.

They are fighting the Liberal government’s plan to increase university tuition fees by 75 percent.

There have been more than 165 protests so far—some of them among the biggest that Canada has ever seen.
