June 20, 2012 Forum at SFU Harbour Centre:
Student-led actions in Quebec have forced issues of education, austerity and a
lifetime of debt onto the public agenda.
What can we learn from the student-led education strikes in Quebec?

can build on this energy and inspire such debate in BC – a province where tuition
has doubled in the last decade and deeper cuts loom on the horizon.
