Police ready for striking students' return to class
Police say they're ready as striking post-secondary students head back to class next week.
They're scheduled to return at a number of institutions in accordance with the provincial government's emergency legislation in light of unrest over planned tuition increases.
Montreal police commander Ian Lafreniere says there will be police presence.
"We don't want to force an entry of some people to get inside schools and, at the end of it, learning that it was impossible for the teachers to provide that education, so there's a reason why we're working closely with the people in charge. The message is clear: we'll be working with them and we'll do everything to make sure that it will be safe and sound for everyone on Monday", says Lafreniere.
Police won't say how many schools they'll be at, citing strategic reasons.
