Civil Unrest - in Quebec students continue protests; some arrests made

Nearly 100,000 people demonstrated in Montreal to protest increased university tuition fees and a new law to limit demonstration freedoms.

During the past weeks of protest, several cloaked demonstrators have smashed storefronts and clashed with police. Although mostly peaceful, the marchers have had some confrontations with the police.

Travellers should exercise caution and avoid all public and political demonstrations since they may become violent without notice.
