The provincial government is making life more difficult for the poor and students, according to over 1,000 people protesting a plethora of issues downtown on Nov. 23. Tuition fee increases for students was one of the hot topics, along with increased health-care user fees and shale gas exploration. The protest was timed to stage opposition to Premier Jean Charest’s Liberal party, which is currently facing allegations of corruption. Similar demonstrations occurred around the province, including Quebec City and Sherbrooke.
