Collège d'Alma students ordered to end class boycott

April 2, 2012

On Friday, a Quebec Superior Court judge ordered a temporary injunction to end the student walkout at Collège d'Alma, a CÉGEP in the province's Saguenay region. The order meant that picketing in opposition to tuition fee increases had to end and students had to return to school on Monday. Students at the CÉGEP had voted to walk out in early March. The president of the Fédération étudiante collégiale du Québec says students will fight the injunction. Meanwhile, a Université de Montréal law student lost his bid Friday for a similar court injunction. The court ruled that there was no need for an emergency injunction becauses classes had resumed in the student's particular faculty. Collège d'Alma blog (in French) | CBC | Canadian Press
