Students: what way forward?
It isn’t clear Sunday when talks are to resume between the government and the students, but some are hoping for Monday.
FECQ’s Léo Bureau-Blouin may have misspoken when he said students may be prepared to accept tuition hikes. The Gazette leapt on this with the headline Students may be ready for compromise but Mr. Bureau-Blouin is reaching the end of his term as head of FECQ and will soon step aside for a leader we haven’t seen yet, Éliane Laberge.
I suspect that right now, it’s not the school year or academic results that are on the minds of the authorities. The CBC’s Salimah Shivji reports this morning that the Quebec tourism minister is hastening to assure tourists that student demos won’t interfere with the city’s summer offerings.
What will happen between now and the first day of the Grand Prix, June 8?
