Evolo Condos in Montreal
A Vice writer ponders the student movement – with some good photos too.
Susana Machado, Kate, Josh, and 1 other are discussing. Toggle Comments
You call this journalism? There are blatant lies in this article:
Premier Jean Charest has completely shut down talks with student unions
nobody else in the rest of Canada gives a flying fuck about the plight of the young Quebecois
students in the rest of Canada are content being ass-raped by tuition fees
There has been peaceful protest after peaceful protest, night after night; even the Montreal Police would agree.
the rest of Canada [sees] them as “whiny Peppers protesting again,” which by the way underlies every piece of English criticism on this fiasco.
Whatever side of this debate you’re on, please understand that this kind of journalism is no more fair, balanced, or unbiased than Margaret Wente or any of the other right wing pundits you may read.
I said it was Vice. I didn’t say it was journalism.
I find it really curious that this writer thinks that the anger at the Charest government is fomenting (or is supposed to foment, or should foment? he isn’t really clear about that) separatist sentiment. Because… what? Because separatist leaders automatically love students and are completely ethical?
Actually, if anything, the Harper government is what’s fomenting separatist sentiment – in people who never felt it before 2006.
I understand that Kate, but I’m talking about this article. And the writer clearly implies some connection between anger at the Liberal government, and increased buzz about separatism, don’t you think?
Yes, he does. You could take it up with him – I’m not defending it.
I’ve had this conversation yesterday in class. Was rather funny. Very Anglo English Creative writing: some students weren’t happy that the opposition party is endorsing the red square and siding with the student protests because now they feel “dirty” because they don’t want their family in ROC to think they have become separatist. Was a weird conversation. Stating that if you agree one a random subject with a separatist that makes you a separatist too…*shrug* politics…
