Tiohtià:ke (Montreal, unceded Mohawk territory), February 19, 2019 — Already more than 7,500 [now 30,000] students have adopted a strike mandate of at least one week this winter. Many student associations will also hold general assemblies soon in order to increase the pressure on the government, which drags its feet in formulating a serious proposal. Last fall, a clear ultimatum was issued to the Legault government by more than 30 student associations while nearly 60,000 students were on strike in several regions of Quebec.
