In Montreal, Canada today, students protested outside a government-led summit on post-secondary education. The summit was held to determine the future of public university financing in the province of Quebec, and comes in the wake of historic student strikes last year, which brought more than 300,000 students to the streets at its peak. While the provincial government assembled 350 people inside the summit to try to reach a consensus on the issue, one of the major student federations boycotted the meeting, saying what the government is offering isn't enough. FSRN’s Aaron Lakoff has more from Montreal.
