A CEGEP teacher who put himself between protesters and police during last year's Maple Spring has been fined $1150.
Hadi Quaderi tried to intervene when police moved on Lionel Groulx CEGEP in Sainte-Therese to enforce an injunction obtained by students who wanted to return to class.
He was charged with mischief when he tried to talk officers out of attempting to clear protesters away from the doors.
Quaderi had hoped for a discharge but the judge said a prerequisite for that is remorse, not the contemptuous attitude he was seeing from the accused.
Quaderi has vowed to appeal his conviction.
