Vandals strike on eve of education summit
On the eve of the start of the education summit, protestors struck at the Montreal headquarters of the Education ministry on Fullum St., as well as two different riding offices in the Montreal area.
The Rosemont riding offive of Jean-François Lisée, the minister responsible for the Montreal region, and the Laval-des-Rapides riding office of Léo Bureau-Blouin, the PQ MNA who, at this time last year, was the leader of the CEGEP students' federation, and one of the major players in last spring's student protests against the former Charest government.
Red paint was splashed at all three locations.
No one has claimed responsibility for the vandalism. Students opposed to the summit have been making plans for protests. One of the main student federations, the ASSÉ, is boycotting the summit over the government's refusal to discuss the notion of free university tuition.
