Tens of thousands of students filled the streets of Montreal Thursday in a mass protest against a planned hike in tuition fees that they say will undermine Quebec's long-standing commitment to keeping university education accessible to people of all incomes.The increasingly radical student protest is one reason why I hope we always have Quebec. In the same way that the stink of US-American politics infects us, so too does the more vibrant social-democracy and autonomous political thinking of Quebec serve as an antidote to right-wing miasma.
Yes, Quebec tuitions are far lower than any other province's. I wonder why that is? Because Quebec voters aren't stupid chumps who put up with all sorts of bullshit from the political tools of their corporate overlords. They stand up for what's theirs.
I have had my fill of stupid right-wing chumps and ignorant air-heads. My side is with the people who fight back. Not the carpers who fight the weak to compensate for the beatings they endure from the powerful.
