Quebec student movement shifts focus to UQAM

August 24, 2012

The Quebec student movement's focus will be on the Université du Québec à Montréal today after students in 2 of its largest faculties voted to continue their class boycotts and professors voted Thursday to cancel classes where they deem conditions will not allow them to teach. The student group CLASSE has promised to support demonstrators in their efforts to block access to those faculties. Classes will continue as scheduled as UQAM has an obligation to provide an education under Bill 78, says a university official. Montreal Gazette
