The Gazette says they’re supportive of the students but Boisvert’s interpretation is a little more nuanced.
Francis Grenier, who was wounded in the eye in a demonstration two months ago, is suing the Montreal police for using a stun grenade in his face.
The Journal talks about the many university expenditures that could be cut back to enhance the core purpose of teaching students.
