Interactive Timeline: Quebec Student Strike 2012

In December 2011, Erika Shaker invited all of us to question how an older generation of Canadians—now enjoying the most wealth and prosperity Canada has ever known—could have such disdain for its children, particularly the young people who are “trying to work for a better, more collaborative and equitable world?” This question must be extended to how elected government and the Canadian media have portrayed the Quebec student protesters. In the following interactive timeline, Alexandra Epp traces the evolution of the Quebec student strike, highlighting key articles, critical analyses and events arising from this historic movement.
