Protest movement over: FEUQ president
For Quebec's university student's federation, the student conflict is over.
The president of the FEUQ, Martine Desjardins, says that with incoming premier Pauline Marois' pledge to cancel the Charest government's tuition hike, there's no reason to carry on with a protest movement.
She does say, however, that her group will continue to fight for student interests in advance of a summit on higher education which had been promised by the PQ.
Earlier this week, members of the CLASSE student group had said they'll continue their fight for free university education.
