Toronto students rally to support college faculty

October 23, 2017

College students rallied in Downtown Toronto last week to support striking professors, instructors and teaching assistants. Students reportedly gathered at the corner of Bay and Bloor streets at noon before marching to the Ontario Ministry of Education office and Queens Park. “When you're part-time staff and have 300 students, you can't comment on everybody's thesis paper, you can't comment on everyone's assignment,” said Fauvelle. “So we're not growing as students.” More than 60,000 Ontario college students have also signed an online petition demanding their money back because of the strike. In total, roughly 500,000 students at 24 colleges have been affected. Students also reportedly demonstrated at York University. CBC (1) | CBC (2)
