uSherbrooke student may sue student association over missed classes

March 19, 2012

Fed up with a student strike against tuition fee increases, a Université de Sherbrooke law student is preparing to take legal action against his student association. The head of a new coalition against the student strike, the uSherbrooke student says he missed a critical Chinese class last week because students swarmed the classroom and told everyone to go home. The student sent a demand letter yesterday to uSherbrooke's Association générale étudiante de la faculté des lettres et sciences humaines, stating he expects to be compensated 1/12th of the roughly $300 he spent on the course within 20 days or he will begin legal proceedings. The student hopes to inspire others who have been prevented from attending classes to follow his lead. Montreal Gazette
