The red square, popularized as the symbol of the last Quebec student strike in 2005, has once again come to represent the movement. The symbol comes from the French expression, "carrément dans le rouge," or "squarely in the red," referring to the large levels of debt students are facing. In 2005, the fight was over a $103 million cut to financial aid, which the government eventually re-instated.

The Dominion is a monthly paper published by an incipient network of independent journalists in Canada. It aims to provide accurate, critical coverage that is accountable to its readers and the subjects it tackles. Taking its name from Canada's official status as both a colony and a colonial force, the Dominion examines politics, culture and daily life with a view to understanding the exercise of power.
