Police Warn Protestors They’ll Use ‘All Necessary Force’
MONTREAL — Student protestors at the campus of College Lionel Groulx were told by police Tuesday that “all necessary force” would be used against them to ensure that classes at the college could resume.
The protestors were attempting to block entry to the school after 53 students obtained a court injunction last week ordering their classes to resume, the National Post reports. The incident came a day after the resignation of Quebec education minister Line Beauchamp amid mass protests over proposed tuition and fee hikes.
Police also intercepted a school bus believed to be headed to the college carrying about 20 protestors Tuesday morning. The protestors were detained and questioned.
