Charest dehors! On va te trouver une job dans le Nord

On April 30 striking students did a snake march in downtown Gatineau so as to keep up the pressure on the liberal governement. The main slogan of the march was addressed at Jean Charest who was told to leave and work would be found for him up in the north, a reference to his joking with the business leaders at a promotional event for his 'Plan for the north'. He ridiculed striking students demonstrating outside, saying that perhaps they could find a job up north. Riot police beat up students during this demonstration. During the snake march, some of the participants stayed behind when it proceeded to the provincial court because of the conditions they received following a mass arrest on April 19.

Jean Charest's destructive Plan Nord

This is an old, familiar story: exploitation of natural resources and aboriginal lands by mining interests, under the pretense of consultation, economic development, and protection. But Jean Charest's Plan Nord is stupendous for its scale, for the level of government involvement, and for its influence on other governments in Canada.
