March 22 tuition fee protest 5

While over 300,000 students have gone on strike in Quebec, much has been said about the Anglophone/Francophone split. English-language schools have not voted to strike at the same level as Francophone schools. At the same time, though, while school wide votes have not been effective, faculty and department associations strike votes have been gaining momentum.

At Concordia University, the entire undergraduate association voted to strike for one week, and other departments representing several thousand students have continued to strike. At McGill University, there was no university-wide vote, but around 10,000 students were on strike on March 22, with some departments voting to continue on an unlimited strike.

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.
