Ryerson Social Justice Week 2012: Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois speaks on the Québec Student Strike

Students in Quebec made international headlines when they went on strike to stop a 75% tuition fee increase. In what became the longest student strike in Canadian history, Quebec students resisted police repression and a government-led attack on civil liberties. In the process, they inspired a solidarity movement across Quebec and Canada.  In response to the social crisis provoked by the strike, Quebec premier Jean Charest called a snap election in August - and lost. On September 20, the incoming government cancelled the fee increase and scrapped Charest's anti-protest law - a total victory of the students' demands.

Why Quebec might block west-to-east tar sands pipeline plans

October always brings shorter days, falling leaves and the bite of frost. This year, frost in Alberta is also coming from politics, as B.C. Premier Christy Clark digs in her heels over the proposed Northern Gateway oil pipeline to take bitumen from the oilsands to China.

In landlocked Alberta, oilsands operators are desperate to get their bitumen to the coast, any coast, to find the sweet spot of much higher international prices. Blocked by U.S. President Barack Obama from getting to the Texas Gulf coast by a temporary hold on the Keystone XL pipeline, corporate hopes quickly shifted to oil pipelines to the B.C. coast.
