After months of student protests over exponential tuition hikes, the Government of Quebec passed a draconian emergency anti-protest law. Then this happened.
Protests started over a month ago after the Quebec Cabinet proposed province wide tuition hikes, triggering widespread student boycotts. In response, The National Assembly of Quebec passed Bill 78 as an emergency law in an attempt to limit protest rights. What followed is being described as the single biggest act of civil disobedience in Canadian history.
