Evolo Condos in Montreal
Another piece in the Guardian UK considers the student strike as part of a wider trend and also within the tradition of dissent in Quebec.

lets talk about workers’ economics for a change. How about a piece on employers who “gave raises” last week, right before minimum went up this week? i know more than a few who have been fornicated in such a manner.
I heard that thought a lot: “In the painful tumult of daily protests, an entire generation of Québécois youth is learning a political lesson no class would ever teach: violence underlies all of society’s inequalities, and power doesn’t yield an inch without a fight.”
Former PQ Premier Lucien Bouchard, together with other personalities, has signed a letter urging Quebecers to support the government in the tuition hike dispute.
There was a larger bit on CBC news tonight, where Bouchard was interviewed as well. He wasn’t quoted giving any good reason for the hikes, but said that the government should stay firm because it is its responsibility to maintain order.
One thing he said about the hikes is that universities are underfunded, lacking 600 million or so, and that we need those to stay competitive as a province. The point that this hike doesn’t improve the funding for universities because it merely shifts tax contributions to user fees naturally didn’t get raised by the CBC.
@ Antonio: “Former PQ Premier Lucien Bouchard, together with other personalities, has signed a letter urging Quebecers to support the government in the tuition hike dispute.”
Where does he find the time,with all the Fracking-is-Safe speeches he gives for oily cash?
