Arrests after Quebec students hold ‘last chance’ talksAgence France-Presse . Quebec City
Talks between students and the Quebec government aimed at ending more than three months of protests over tuition fee hikes were set to resume on Tuesday after the arrest of 84 protesters.
The demonstrators were arrested near the talks venue in Quebec City, the capital of the mostly French-speaking Canadian province, shortly after the negotiators had adjourned for the night.
A policeman at the scene said the protesters were arrested for blocking traffic and would be fined $400 each and released.
Student leader Leo Bureau-Blouin had earlier said negotiations would continue Tuesday afternoon, without providing further details or saying whether any progress had been made.
