Student strike: more stories and updates
Students held yet another demonstration Tuesday evening and it remained peaceful.
(Listening to the CBC local news this morning I heard the news reader say the student demos had become “gradually more violent” which struck me as both inaccurate and inflammatory: the violence spiked in Victoriaville on May 4 but since then it’s been clear nobody wants a reprise of that kind of scene.)
Proof that injunctions can’t force people back to classes was demonstrated Tuesday at a CEGEP in Ste-Thérèse. Rima Elkouri ponders the ludicrous notion of using police methods to force people to teach and learn – while Jean Charest prepares a law to do just that.
Meantime, Michelle Courchesne may have said some magic words in her first pourparlers with student leaders.
