Gambling site names odds on strike outcomes
A gambling site based in Kahnawake is offering odds on various student strike outcomes.
Le Devoir says Michelle Courchesne will talk if the tuition hike moratorium is off the table while the CBC says she will talk if Bill 78 is off the table. If either of those things is true, I’d say Courchesne has to accept that this can’t be about keeping the upper hand or showing the students who’s boss, because frankly we’ve seen the results of that kind of attitude and we know it doesn’t work. FEUQ and FECQ are no longer holding out for the suspension of Bill 78 before they’ll talk.
Since Bill 78 has to be made to pay something, CLASSE may be fined for Tuesday’s demo, because they never submitted a route to the police and this CTV piece suggests Courchesne is wavering on accepting CLASSE’s presence at any talks because they “encourage people to break the law.”
I guess they should come arrest me too, then: I was among the thousands who took the unsanctioned route west along Sherbrooke and down Peel Street Tuesday afternoon.
