Student strike to resume in mid August
A Quebec student leader says the student strike over rising tutiions will resume August 17th.
That's the same day classes are schedued to resume at more than a dozen CEGEPS.
Martine Desjardins, leader of a university student group, predicts an election campaign will be underway by then, that the walkout will be overshadowed by the election battle.
Desjardins adds it seems clear to students that premier Charest wants to use the dispute as an election issue.
Mediation has been proposed.
Tuition is scheduled to go up by nearly 18-hundred dollars over seven years.
