Description

Student protests in Canada escalate as nearly 700 people were arrested on Wednesday night alone. The rallies against the proposed tuition fee increases have been going on for over a 100 days in Quebec. Many of those detained were carted off in public buses, which police converted into temporary holding pens. The demonstrations swelled after Quebec's government passed emergency laws last week to make the protests more difficult to organize. For more on the situation RT talks to Corey Pool, news editor of Concordia University's The Link, newspaper.
