Quebec's French and English students disagree over tuition

November 17, 2007

A rally against tuition increases in Montreal last week saw a much smaller than expected turnout -- perhaps due in part to inclement weather.  60,000 Quebec students -- mostly from French-language institutions -- voted to take action to protest tuition hikes, but English-speaking students did not agree.  Students at both McGill and Concordia universities rejected the move to strike.
